Earlier in the week, I gave my last cooking lesson. Not surprisingly, I offered another variation on brownies — this time topped with a citrus-touched cheesecake — with the batter completely prepared in one saucepan on the stovetop.
I’m sad to leave Seoul and to pack up my little kitchen here. It’s kind of fun, actually, to see the ingredients and spices I’ve collected from all over Asia. Tapioca flour from Jakarta…yuzu powder from Kyoto…dried mangos from Manilla…good good stuff.
So as I’m putting on good ol’ songs about summertime, and making my last few dishes (Momofuku’s Crack pie a la Korea), I’ll also be taking requests for my final hits in the kitchen. Any requests?
