Korea is the First Episode of Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown

Good audio and text interview with Anthony Bourdain on the Peabody Awards site. He talks about the process of making the show and his feelings about certain landmark episodes.

Promoting Korean Food, Chapter 3: Common Myths About Foreigners

A few years ago I was asked to write a small book on promoting Korean food. I finished the manuscript, but it never got published. The publisher ended up going out of business. Here is the old manuscript for your enjoyment, posted in segments. Keep in mind that this was written in late 2010, but some parts are still relevant today. Introduction Chapter 1: Know Your Market Chapter 2: A Clash of Media Cultures Chapter 3: Common Myths...
