About Jai Nam Choi

I was born and raised in Myeong Dong in Seoul Korea in a family of 11 children. My mother was a famous fashion designer in Korea and she sent me to the United States to attend art school to learn the latest Western fashions but I met my husband, fell in love, and decided to stay in America. We worked really hard to make it in America. We had two kids - a boy and a girl, and could not be more proud. My son, Roy, is a famous chef and my daughter, Julie, is a lawyer. I love to cook and my house is always filled with people and food. I decided to make these sauces so that I could pass on my recipes and flavors to my children and grandchildren. My kids and grandkids love these sauces so much they said that I had to share my flavors with the world! Each of these sauces is different but feel free to experiment with them - there is no wrong way to use them.
