Korean Fusion Foods Make Mark in the StatesBroiled beef, vegetable salad topped with grilled and seasoned meat, and seasoned greens with Risotto are several examples of the fusion cuisine which can be found in the cookbook Seoul Taste NY Relish ($8.50).
Yoon Jung-su published the book based on her experience as a cooking instructor in New Jersey and New York.
Yoon's grandmother was related to Korean princess Uichin, therefore Mrs. Yoon had many first-hand opportunities to taste royal cuisine as a child. Following her marriage, Mrs. Yoon and her husband moved to New York where they studied western cuisine for eight years.
Mrs.Yoon said,"Most Korean foods have less calories and fat than western dishes. Whenever westerners visit my home I like to offer dishes that combine the best of Korean and western cuisine."
