debbie leeEvery year, a new batch of cookbooks hits store shelves. Some bad and some good, but only a handful (or 19 if you agree with The New York Times) rise to the top and really shine.

You’ll see a familiar name while browsing their list: Former Food Network Star (season five) contestant Debbie Lee‘s cookbook, Seoultown Kitchen: Korean Pub Grub to Share With Family and Friends, made the Times list with glowing reviews.

Debbie’s small plates, cocktails and Asian-inspired comfort classics make Korean food accessible. Sure, you might not be able to pronounce some of the ingredients, but we bet her beer-heavy recipes will make fans out of even her biggest haters.
