BOOK OF THE MONTH: Umma’s Table
STORY OF THE BOOK: ‘Madang’ is an artist who moves to the countryside home with his wife and a young baby, excited to build a new life full of hope and joy, complete with a garden and even snow. But soon reality sets in and his attention is divided between his growing happy family and his impoverished parents in Seoul. In this session, the hosts will be in a discussion about how the joy of food and tradition unites a family faltering in the face of illness and loss as well as how the kitchen and communal cooking bind past, present and future together.
GUEST: Saimi Jeong, a Communications professional/Journalist will join us in conversation with Heather Jeong who is a leading Korean food expert, TV chef and cooking instructor.
