About the author (2016)

Da-Hae was born in Busan, South Korea, but raised in England from the age of three. Her mother continued to cook Korean food in England, often using ingenious substitutions, so Da-Hae enjoyed Korean breakfasts, lunches and dinners every day. Gareth's career in food began with a job at restaurant group D&D London.

They decided to start their street food company Busan BBQ in 2013, with Da-Hae now running the business full-time. Da-Hae, Gareth, and Busan BBQ have been featured in the media on numerous occasions, from the Travel Channel and BBC's The One Show to many excellent reviews and features in press ranging nationals such as the Telegraph and the Independent to magazines such as Stylist.
