My Cuisine is the Culture that Surrounds Me

Speaker: Ed Lee (Chef and Restaurateur)

Explores Chef Lee's struggle to find his own personal voice. Being a chef starts out by learning technique and recipes but at some point, we have to internalize the cultures around us and form a unique and personal cuisine that tells our story.

Ed found that voice in KY and has used the ingredients and the traditions around him as a source of inspiration while at the same time combining that with the Korean heritage of his youth and the training he received working in fine dining restaurants in New York City.
Ed will give some background to the many ingredients in KY that are unique and tasty. Now many of these ingredients are enjoying a wider popularity and it is a fascinating case study to see how obscure homegrown ingredients can spread around the country and also the world.
