Featured Chef
Sang Kim

Sang Kim is the owner-operator of Yakitori Bar and Seoul Food Co., Toronto, and was behind some of the best-known modern Japanese and Korean restaurant concepts in Canada. He is the author of A Dream Called Laundry and Ballad of a Karaoke Cowboy. His latest writing project, Woody Allen Ate My Kimchi, is a candid and hilarious look behind-the-scenes at some of the top restaurants in Ontario, and is slated to launch in late 2013. Kim was inspired by his childhood growing up on his grandparents’ radish farm in South Korea, where he watched his grandmother and seven aunts prepare fresh vegetable dishes that went into making bibimbap and other Korean specialties.

What would people be surprised to find in your kitchen?

A live (non-edible) pet turtle called Twinkle Toes.

Which kitchen tool couldn’t you live without?

Hand blender. A deeply ingrained propensity toward laziness has me puréeing just about everything.

What is your favourite guilty pleasure?

Late-night karaoke and gallons of cheap soju (a distilled alcoholic beverage) until the break of dawn.

What is the most unusual thing you’ve ever eaten?

Dog meat and live octopus, both in Korea.
