An Evening with Hooni Kim, Chef-Owner of Danji

Filmed October 24, 2012

Hooni Kim elevated Korean cuisine in New York City when he opened his restaurant Danji in December of 2010, and promptly received a Michelin star in 2011 for his inspired traditional, as well as modern, Korean food. Danji was conceived as a Korean tapas bar and The New York Times described his small plates as “magical,” “luscious,” and “pretty great” while praising him as a “terrific cook.” Hear how Hooni discovered cooking and went on to champion Korean food. He’ll take you inside the New York restaurant world and tell you what’s next, as he prepares, later this year, to open a second restaurant; this time his take on a joomak, a traditional tavern where the food is matched to various drinks. Interviewed by Jason Cho, food blogger at The Insatiable Palate.
