About Me & FAQ

Welcome to my website. 😀 My name is Aeri Lee. My cooking style has been influenced by growing up in the southwestern city of Gwangju in South Korea. Gwangju is well known in Korea for its arts as well as its rich and diverse cuisine. In my school years, I had a dream and passion for teaching, so I went to college and majored in education. In 2007, I married an American who thought my food was so good that I should share it with the rest of the world. Since 2008, I started living out my lifelong dream and passion of teaching by introducing and helping people prepare Korean food through the Internet. I really appreciate all the support and interaction I get from the people that visit my website and corresponding YouTube channels. Meanwhile, little taste testers were born who agree with Daddy, “Mommy’s food is the best!”
