Going out to a restaurant can be a way of traveling around the world without setting foot on a plane. But do you ever get the feeling that, even here in New York where we have access to every cuisine imaginable, they're only serving up Americanized versions of what you’d find abroad?
This season, Lopate and Locavores: Eating Around the World invites experts to share the authentic dishes from their countries that you wouldn't find in a restaurant.
For the second night of our annual, three-part food series, Maangchi (dubbed "YouTube's Korean Julia Child" by The New York Times) talks Korean cooking and shares her authentic recipes with WNYC host and three-time James Beard Award winner Leonard Lopate. Join us for a lively conversation, cooking demonstration and Q&A.
You can also watch a live video stream beginning 7pm ET.

Maangchi was born in South Korea and lived there most of her life. She learned how to make traditional Korean food from the people around her: her mother, her grandmothers, her aunts and relatives, as well as cooks in local markets, restaurants, pubs, and street corners. Her passion for cooking is on full display on YouTube, where her videos on Korean cooking are regularly watched by millions of people around the world and praised for their authenticity and deliciousness. Her website has become the top online destination for Korean food and cooking, allowing a whole new generation to discover her native cuisine. She recently released a cookbook, Maangchi’s Real Korean Cooking.
