In 2022 I got a chance to chew the fat with so many interesting people on Special Sauce. I couldn’t possibly pick a favorite episode to leave you with, but I can certainly say with confidence that my conversation with NYT food writer Eric Kim is right up there. Eric is thoughtful, a fine recipe developer, and a lovely writer. His book Korean American: Food That Tastes Like Home, is terrific. So as the new year approaches I thought we’d leave you with Eric’s episode. It’s definitely worth another listen or if you didn’t have a chance to do so when we first posted it in July, you are in for a treat. And in case you’re wondering what Eric is up to these days he texted me that he is hard at work on a new book, a collection of essays. And Eric’s next column for the NYT Magazine is a New Year’s column on rice cake soup.
