About the Author

Mingoo Kang is the chef and owner of Mingles, located in Seoul, which has been named one of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants and holds two Michelin stars. Kang's approach at Mingles of presenting innovative hansik has earned him both domestic and international acclaim, and he frequently collaborates with chefs around the world. Most recently, in 2021, he was awarded the Inedit Damm Chefs' Choice Award--the only accolade voted for by the other chefs on the Asia's 50 Best Restaurants list. In addition to Mingles, Chef Kang runs a retail market in Seoul called MamaLee Market; Hansik Goo, which offers creative Korean cuisine in Hong Kong; and the popular fried chicken brand Hyodo Chicken.

"Throughout the ages, Korean cuisine has employed fermentation techniques that we are rediscovering. Jang is an integral part of this food, with variations that define its DNA. Chef Mingoo Kang is a brilliant creator who shares with us his vision of a unique and inspiring cuisine."--Yannick Alléno
"This book serves as a necessary guide to improving the understanding of traditional Korean food and applying it in a modern way. Jang will help readers forge deeper relationships with many people through Korean food."--Jeong Kwan
"Mingoo Kang, a luminary of cooking, knows that to truly harness flavor, we must honor the past and let the art of fermentation shape our future."--René Redzepi
"It's crazy to me that there hasn't been a book like this before. Jangs, and not just gochujang, should be in every kitchen in America."--David Chang
"Jang introduces a Western audience to the wonders of gochujang, doenjang, and ganjang. These 'mother sauces' should be just as useful in any cuisine's dishes as they are in hansik. Mingoo Kang shows you how to expand your cooking by understanding jang."--Nobu Matsuhisa
