Tasting Menu: Kwangjuyo Ceramics and Corey Lee

  • Asian Art Museum 200 Larkin Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

The Bay Area is known for its unique food culture and the exquisite plating techniques that are essential to a memorable presentation. Corey Lee — chef of Benu, Monsieur Benjamin and In Situ — uses wares made by Kwangjuyo, a Korea-based company that promotes the beauty of Korean dining culture. 

Lee partners with Kwangjuyo artist Daeyong Kim to create personalized wares for his restaurants. Kim joins us from Korea to talk about their collaboration and process in creating these wares. Lucia Cho, creative director of Kwangjuyo, also joins us from Korea. In 2016, Cho led their traditional restaurant Gaon to be one of the first restaurants in Korea to receive three Michelin stars. Lee will moderate a conversation among the three about Korean dining and ceramic traditions and how they’ve evolved to be internationally recognized.
