California Cooking

“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.

You can try it at home by following Roy’s roast mojo pork recipe and sandwich recipe.
