Iconic Korean American Food Stories I can relate to!

I literally LOL’d listening to four Korean Americans tell their food stories. I can relate to all of them! Great format of weaved in snippets of convos to stitch the stories together. Peter is a natural interviewer! And I love Peter’s ramen “karbonara” recipe! Looking forward to future episodes!
