Clarkson Potter to Publish Koreatown, USA in 2015


Food writer Francis Lam was hired by cookbook publisher Clarkson Potter back in January as an editor-at-large, and now news of his first project: Koreatown, USA, by Food Republic contributing editor Matt Rodbard and Momofuku/Jean-Georges alum Deuki Hong, is slated to be published in 2015. According to Rodbard, the book will "explore Korean food in America, in both traditional settings (the food of K-Towns in Los Angeles, New York and beyond), as well as in the kitchens of non-Korean chefs."

The book promises 100 recipes — most of which will be original but with some contributions from chefs like Paul Qui, Sean Brock, and Craig Koketsu — and essays on topics like "Korean-Uzbekistan cuisine, decoding the weird and wonderful Koreatown bakery and the art of eating live octopus." Stay tuned for more.
