“I vote for you to be on Food Network or the Cooking Channel. You’re a great personality and I love the format of your videos. So genuine and real! :) Love it!” – YuariCaspar

“Hi Jay,

Thanks for posting this. You’re right, you don’t have to be a professional to make great food. In French, “amateur” means “lover of”. To be an amateur means that your pursuits are derived from your passion and commitment. I have found that your recipes really shine because you capture the essence of great food without being fiddly. I really enjoy your videos far more than any celebrity chef on TV.

I’ve been trying to get my eldest to learn at least some rudimentary cooking skills before he goes out into the real world. The first time I’ve seen him get a spark of interest was when I made him watch your chicken udon recipe. My favorite knife is a chef’s knife, but the boy insisted on using the santoku because “Mr. JingJong uses that kind of knife.”

Keep your recipes coming because I’m having fun in the kitchen!” – Naomi

“I really love your videos with family cooking together, and family recipes being made. Reminds me of when I was a girl cooking with my grandma. =)” – theeyesofanother

    I am looking for a recipe, but I do not know the name. There was a lady that I worked with who was from Korea … she would make this dish that has rice noodles and kelp with other veggies in it, not sure if there was any meat. I would love to make it if you could help. Thanks, Tony
