Kimchi Chronicles

I've always referred to Marja Vongerichten as the Queen of all Chefs' wives. Jean-Georges was my husband's first boss and a serious mentor in his culinary career. I've met Marja only ones and she was too beautifully intimidating for me to say anything intelligent to. A small "hi" tumbled out of my mouth.
You two are just adorable
Marja and Jean-Georges Vongerichten

Although the Desperate Chefs' Wives reality show is a sad April fool's day joke passed, Marja has her own legit television series on PBS. Kimchi Chronicles follows Marja and several weekly guests as they explore various Korean eateries, create dishes in her Westchester kitchen, and take part in other Korean activities. I've only just caught the tail end of one episode and it's very charming. As a mother of a one-quarter Korean son I've just got to brush up on my Kimchi recipes. Maverik has eaten bon chon chicken and pickled daikon radishes- but that's the extent of his Korean cultural food knowledge.

Kimchi Chronicles airs at 4:00 PM on PBS here in New York.

Food is Love,
