Little Korea

Iconic dishes & cult recipes

There’s been steadily growing interest and knowledge in Korean food across the globe in recent times – which can be seen reflected in the number of Korean restaurants and chains popping up. Of course, it’s helped that the cult food figure of David Chang and his Momofuko restaurants (as well as Lucky Peach magazine) have helped propel Korean flavours, techniques and classics into the mainstream. Just like some of Korea’s chilli-spiked dishes, this cuisine is very hot right now!
Not only is the food diverse and the flavours distinct, but the dishes are simple to create at home too. Little Korea contains the most popular Korean dishes eaten everyday on the streets and in homes across the nation. No kitchen gadgetry or trickery is required – this is food with a singular mission: to deliver maximum flavour and texture in a simple way.

Billy Law is the founder and editor-in-chief of, which he founded in 2008 and turned into one of Australia’s top food and travel blogs. A self-taught chef coming from an IT background, Billy’s passion for gastronomy led him to embark on a career in the food industry with his skills taking him through to the Top 10 on MasterChef Australia in 2011.

Law is also a professional food photographer with his commissioned work featuring in magazines, restaurants and many cookbook projects, including his own (as seen in XXL).
An avid globetrotter, Law is always on the move, camera in hand, discovering the next food trends and submerging himself in the sights and sounds of the culinary world.
Law has worked with some of the biggest names in the food and travel industries including Nespresso, AirAsia, Qantas, Pernod Ricard Wines, Emirates, Breville, Sodastream and KitchenAid, among many other clients. Billy is also a food and travel writer for Expedia Travel.
Following his time on MasterChef, Billy published his debut cookbook, Have You Eaten? globally in 2012 and his second cookbook Man Food in 2014, both with Smith Street Books’ Paul McNally while he was Publishing Director at Hardie Grant. XXL is their third collaboration together.
