About Joann So
I'm a Californian, cookie lover (and baker), and second generation Korean-American cook. I spent my childhood at my parents' coffee shop, where my sister and I helped assemble chicken salad, baked chocolate chip cookies, and finished homework on the cafe tables. In college, I traveled to Paris to finish my courses in art history, but probably was there for the flaky tarts and croissants. I feel fortunate to have tried (and continue to be exposed to) many wonderful flavors, from my grandmothers' Korean kitchens to the many delicious eats of San Francisco. I'm looking forward to sharing a slice of my passion with you!
