“Parte biografía, parte aventura culinaria, este vibrante y energético libro capta la esencia de la escena de la comida callejera en L.A. Sus páginas están inspiradas en el arte del graffiti, y el texto tiene un sabor de hip-hop que mezcla la comida, comunidad, e identidad en un delicioso banquete para los ojos y orejas que refleja el crisol cultural de los Estados Unidos.” — Honor del Premio Sibert para el Libro Informacional Más Distinguido
"Part biography, part culinary adventure, this vibrant and energetic book captures the essence of the LA street food scene. Graffiti-inspired art and hip-hop flavored text blend food, community and identity into a delicious feast for the eyes and ears that reflect the melting pot of America." — Sibert Award Honor for Most Distinguished Informational Book
Chef Roy Choi calls himself a “street cook.”
He wants outsiders, low-riders,
kids, teens, shufflers and skateboarders,
to have food cooked with care, with love,
with sohn maash.
"Sohn maash" is the flavors in our fingertips. It is the love and cooking talent that Korean mothers and grandmothers mix into their handmade foods. For Chef Roy Choi, food means love. It also means culture, not only of Korea where he was born, but the many cultures that make up the streets of Los Angeles, where he was raised. So remixing food from the streets, just like good music—and serving it up from a truck—is true to L.A. food culture. People smiled and talked as they waited in line. Won't you join him as he makes good food smiles?
Jacqueline Briggs Martin, author of the Caldecott Medal winner, Snowflake Bentley as well as Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table, and Alice Waters and the Trip to Delicious continues her Food Heroes series with Chef Roy Choi on people who change what and how we eat. Together with food ethnographer June Jo Lee and internationally renowned graffiti artist Man One, they bring an exuberant celebration of street food and street art. The audiobook edition of El Chef Roy Choi y su remix de la comida callejera, narrated by illustratOR Man One, will be released in late fall 2022.
