For a sneak peek into the family recipes that have influenced accomplished bakers, chefs and food bloggers, check out Cultural Kitchen, a new YouTube series on the Tasted channel. Each brief, beautifully-shot episode explores the personal story behind one important recipe with well-known food figures, such as Korean food blogger Maangchi. Watch the utterly adorable episode about her grandmother's rice cake soup below.
Other episodes of the series include a look at Top Chef's Dale Talde and his reinterpretation of the Filipino dish kare kare, and the traditional rhubarb pie made by the sisters who run the Brooklyn bakery Four and Twenty Blackbirds, courtesy of their grandmother's recipe box.
New episodes of Cultural Kitchen are posted every Thursday.
