Charlie Rose: San Francisco Benu’s Chef Corey Lee

To be honest, I have never heard of chef and restauranteur Corey Lee nor the San Francisco restaurant Benu until I watched a recent episode of the PBS late night talk show Charlie Rose. But seeing a Korean American chef being interviewed on TV certainly caught my eye, as do other Asian American chefs like David Chang and Ming Tsai.


Lee was a guest on the show to help promote his new cook book titled, benu, which he describes as a 33 course tasting menu (which is not something offered at his restaurant). Lee also highlights his background, life and philosophy around food to Rose in this interview.
