Having lived in the UK for nearly 30 years, Aeyoung realised Korean food is little known there. In 2001 she went back to Korea and during her seven year stay she worked in the British Embassy for the last 3 years. While working there, the idea of this book was formed. A simple and fun way of introducing Korean cuisine and sharing different ways of thinking through comparing "Well known sayings" from both countries. Upon her return to the UK, inspired and prompted by her son's and many friends' love of Korean food, she finally decided to write this handy book.
