Da-Hae West

Da-Hae West is a Korean cookery teacher, consultant and author of K-Food. Born in Busan, South Korea, Da-Hae moved to England when she was three. Watching her mother in the kitchen inspired a love of Korean food and in 2012, she opened Busan BBQ with her husband – a street food truck selling modern Korean food at pop up restaurants and markets across London. In 2015, Octopus Publishing published her first cookbook K-Food – a mixture of the traditional dishes she grew up with along with ways to use Korean ingredients in a more modern way. Da-Hae is an authority on Korean food, having worked as a researcher for Gizzi Erskine’s Seoul Food and Home Economist for John Torode’s Korean Food Tour as well as appearing on the BBC’s One Show and The Travel Channel’s Footie Shorts. She works closely with the Korean Embassy and Korean Cultural Centre as a cookery teacher and was a judge at their 2015 Global Taste of Korea Contest, a speaker at Hottest K-Food and regularly hosts Korean cookery demos.
