“L.A. Son” Chef Roy Choi has been working from home amid the coronavirus pandemic, but has also hit the streets with his famed Kogi Korean BBQ truck.
He said that a silver lining of the crisis has been embracing new hobbies, which for him includes making flower arrangements!
He hopes to turn his new-found passion into a nonprofit foundation benefiting local youth.
Jessica also talked to Roy about the person who inspired him to become a chef, how food in his native Los Angeles is engrained in its culture, and “The Chef Show” –one of Jessica’s favorite shows– which he co-hosts with Jon Favreau.
Jessica then made Roy’s savory Cubano sandwich.
