About the Author

Korean-born, American-raised Corey Lee (b.1977) is the head chef of Benu, one of America’s most celebrated restaurants, and one of only a handful to receive three Michelin stars. Lee brings his background to bear on the food at Benu creating an eclectic, creative, Asian-inspired American cuisine that explores identity, culture and belonging. Having worked at some of the most acclaimed restaurants in England, France and the US, including Thomas Keller’s French Laundry, Lee’s own restaurant has been proclaimed as the next big American restaurant by both the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.
