Zenkimchi is the Greatest
This is the message that Joe McPherson sent out:
"Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern" will premiere its South Korea episode in the U.S. on the Travel Channel at 10 p.m. EST. We at ZenKimchi were highly involved in the planning, research and shooting of this show. Eun Jeong, Dan Gray (Seoul Eats), Chef Hu-nam Kim (Star Chef), and more of our friends guided Andrew Zimmern on his tour through Seoul. If you're not in the U.S., the episode will later air on Discover Networks stations worldwide on various dates. It will likely be available for download on iTunes ($1.99) by next week. I'm also posting whatever videos I can find on the web to the ZenKimchi Korean Food Journal. Make sure to stop by the Food Journal for behind-the-scenes pics and stories. Happy eating, Joe McPherson ZenKimchi Korean Food Journal
Joe has a great write up and pictures on his site. Be sure to check it out here.
Joe McPherson has been at the forefront of the Korean food wave for years. He was the one that inspired me to write about food. He is my mentor and hero. What he has done for Korea cannot be measured in praise or even in money.
I think the very least we can do is buy him a beer. You know what? That's what I'm going to do right now and I encourage you to do the same. Go to his paypal link and send Joe some love. The man just got married to the wonderful Eun Jeong and they need some congratulations.
It's super easy and you know what...
I just sent Joe 50 American dollars right now.
You don't have to send him that much and I wish I could send him more. A buck, two, or more would show Joe how much we appreciate what he has done.
Again, here is the link to the Paypal account.
