About Maangchi

Korean home cooking is a comfort food unlike any in the world. Enter Maangchi, a Korean-born, NYC-based chef who uses YouTube to give her audience of 3M+ subscribers a essential insight into how to make beautiful and delicious dishes, just like a Korean mom’s home cooking. She covers everything from essential BBQ staples and japchae to more off-the-beaten-path favorites like jjajangmyeon and, of course, Korean fried chicken. Her big personality and welcoming, even encouraging approach to often complex cooking tasks makes learning how to not only learn how to cook homestyle favorites, but do it intuitively, is a big part of her success.
