“All of Joanne Lee Molinaro’s work reminds us that the best part of any recipe is the story behind it. In her debut cookbook, she shares not only so many wonderful vegan Korean dishes (I want to cook so many things!), she also shares herself and her family with us. We are better for it.”
– Julia Turshen, Bestselling Cookbook Author of Simply Julia
In her debut cookbook, Joanne shares over 80 intoxicating, plant-based recipes and moving narrative snapshots of the food that shaped her family history. Recipes range from Joanne’s childhood staples, like Jjajangmyun, the rich black bean noodles she ate on birthdays to the humble Gamja Guk, a potato-and-leek soup her father makes. Others are a little more personal, like the Chocolate Sweet Potato Cake which is an ode to the two foods that saved her mother’s life.
The Korean Vegan Cookbook is 336 pages of breathtaking dishes, and the intimate storytelling and stunning photography she’s become known for on social media. Not only a soon-to-be kitchen staple but truly a one-of-a-kind cookbook that celebrates how deeply food and family shape our identity.
