This made a great gift! Came exactly as it's pictured and looks even more detailed/vibrant in person. We've hung it up in our kitchen and it really pops. Thank you!
Simple Ingredients, Complex Flavor
In April of 2014, we (Choi and Eric) collaborated on a comic recipe book entitled, Korean / American: Everyday Cooking. In it, we explored our relationship, our recipes and our cat. Under the collective title of Porkbelly Comics, we continue to creatively explore those things that make it all worthwhile – food and family. We print, fold and bind the books at our home in Los Angeles, with little to no help from our fat cat, Quentin.

Frequently asked questions
How Big Are Your Books?
Since the release of our first book - "Everyday Cooking" - on April 5th, 2014 at MoCCA '14 the most frequent question we have received concerns dimensions. The exact measurements are 4.25 x 5.5 inches - or just a little bit bigger than a postcard or large envelope. As a result, we don't call them actual cookbooks. Attempting to create a full meal from scratch using the recipes is entirely possible - but could be tough due to the scale of the images. We tend to view our comics as a celebration of the food, the fun and the culture we enjoy rather than a fully illustrated instruction manual. Many cooking comics employ this same approach, but we like to state it outright for our customers. We hope this information helps!
How Long Has Porkbelly Comics Been Around?
We've recently had a few customers wondering how long we have been in business together / our history. While our Etsy store was established in fall of 2014, Choi and I developed our first cooking-comic - Korean / American: Everyday Cooking in March earlier that year, while still living in Brooklyn. Our first run of 100 books was sold out at MoCCA (Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art) Fest in April '14. Since then we've done our best to put out at least one book a year - in between visiting all the awesome food joints in LA!
