Join us on Saturday, February 27, as we celebrate Lunar New Year with acclaimed chef, professor, entrepreneur, & food writer Grace Choi ('03). Hear about her recipe for success, what led her to cooking, the Food Network, and building an interactive multimedia platform. Grace will also do a cooking demonstration of a popular Korean jeon (savory pancakes), inspired by her friend and Michelin Award-winning chef Hooni Kim's famous scallion pancakes.
Grace Choi ('03) is the founder of Larabee, a procedural knowledge content platform designed to teach anyone how to do anything. Grace is a classically trained chef out of the French Culinary Institute in New York, and Food Studies PhD from New York University. She has two decades of diverse experience in the food industry, from line cook at award-winning restaurants to food and psychology adjunct professor at NYU and The New School. She hosted a short-form interstitial for the Cooking Channel called "Cooking with Grace" and serves as a cookbook judge for the prestigious James Beard Awards. Through Larabee, Grace reimagines the architecture of recipes by adapting timeless apprenticeship-style methods of learning for today's technology ecosystems. Larabee's focus is on genuine depth of knowledge, confidence, and know-how rather than fast facts and superficial understandings of everyday things.
