Cooking with latitude
Written by Jelle Steenbergen on Friday 7 July 2017
Deliciousness is more than simple flavor. It’s culture, geography, even memory. It seems different everywhere you go, but if you dig deep enough, it’s strikingly similar.
Our planet doesn’t care about the lines we draw on it. Chef Edward Lee is one of the people that have known that for a long time. Fusion cooking isn’t about bringing the disparate together, because in the eyes of nature, Korea and Kentucky are the same. They’re on the same latitude after all, so bringing them together is only natural.
California, Sicily, and Korea have more in common than you might think. Sweetness, salt, and a hint of spice come together to create a type of deliciousness that is very familiar. Dit you know that kimchi gets much of its profile from the same bacteria that make Sicilian cheese what it is?
Find out more about how the seemingly disparate regions of the world have more in common than you think in the latest edition of Food Inspiration magazine: Deliciousness.
