MAANGCHI ("Hammer" in Korean) was born and raised in South Korea, where she learned the fundamentals of home cooking from her relatives. A former counselor for victims of domestic violence and movie extra, she is the founder-owner of maangchi.com, the top online destination for Korean cooking. She also has her own YouTube channel. She lives in New York City.
"Maangchi’s Big Book of Korean Cooking: From Everyday Meals to Celebration Cuisine is her second book, an even more comprehensive take on Korean home cooking than the first — think Julia Child’s iconic Mastering the Art of French Cooking, but with bibimbap." —Eater "Reading Maangchi’s Big Book of Korean Cooking is like being on a WhatsApp chain with my friends’ moms. There are photos of ingredients to buy (Sempio soy sauce, tubes of soft tofu) and recipes that go beyond KBBQ (chicken ginseng soup, Korean temple–style vegetables), all in the same tone that makes Maangchi feel like everyone’s auntie." —Elyse Inamine, digital restaurant editor, for Bon Appetit —
