Cooking Octopus on Olive TV

A couple of months ago, I was on Korea’s Olive TV, which is sort of like Food Network. The show was “You Can Cook,” which is a bunch of guys learning how to cook. The segment I did was with French expat Fabian–who has amazing Korean speaking skills.

You can tell we had a lot of fun making this video. A little behind-the-scenes background…

The producers and I worked together to come up with a recipe. It was a joint effort. No one knew what it was going to taste like before shooting. Fabian was the first person to ever try the dish. But it surprisingly turned out to be very good. I’ll post the recipe on here sometime.

Remind me.
