‘Judy Joo captures the flavors and the heart of Korean food and switches things up just enough to make them accessible and familiar, but not so much that you lose the soul of the recipe. It’s an art!’

A celebration of Asian chefs and their dishes to ring in the Year of the Tiger 🐅 for @thecaterermag . Thanks for the commission @ewinton88 😊Loved working on this cover design because I grew up in my parent’s Chinese takeaway and learnt to use a fiery wok, a lot of my family are chefs who own/ed their own restaurants and takeaways. This one is for you Dad - if you were still Earthside I’d be screen sharing the article and we’d have a good chat about it 🤗🥡🥟5 days ago via Instagram
