Joined by Danji chef Hooni Kim, the duo will cover the array of recipes home chefs can prepare, including bulgogi, Korean fried chicken, and bibimbap. The host and author will also be available to sign copies of her latest batch of recipes, from Maangchi’s Real Korean Cooking. Tickets are $32 and can be secured through the 92nd Street Y’s website.
