the word ggoma is both a simple nod to my place as the little brother in a big family,

and a larger recognition of my identity as a Korean-American adoptee.

understanding the food I want to cook has been a constant journey - a reflection of being caught between two cultures without ever feeling quite comfortable with either.

 

it's why I chose the name, and why the notion of a 'little one' making sense of his place means so much to me.
