Mouth on fire for new PBS series: The Kimchi Chronicles

Rarely have I been so excited about a new PBS series (though I do get excited about them often enough). This preview (courtesy NYT Video) entices with shots of lots of red food, and extensive culinary travels in South Korea by series host, Korean American Marja Vongerichten, wife accompanying host, chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Finally, a quality show about Korean cuisine.

Thank you so much for creating and updating this blog! It's so comprehensive and just what I was looking for. As a Korean-American I really wanted to read something written by, for, and about Korean-Americans and I was having a hard time finding novels and short-stories elsewhere. Thank you!
