Food ethnographer June Jo Lee joins us for a discussion of her new book Chef Roy Choi and the Street Food Remix. Chef Roy Choi calls himself a “street cook.” He wants outsiders, low-riders, kids, teens, shufflers, and skateboarders, to have food cooked with care, with love, with sohn maash—the love and cooking talent that Korean mothers and grandmothers mix into their handmade foods. For Chef Roy Choi, food means love. It also means culture, not only of Korea where he was born, but the many cultures that make up the streets of Los Angeles, where he was raised.
