For Sung Park, the chef and owner of Bistro Petit in Williamsburg, it was a foie gras torchon. That's what opened his eyes to the world of French fine dining, and the dish that set him on a mission to do that kind of cooking himself.

Our buddy Liza de Guia of Food Curated profiles Park in the video below: his discovery of French food, his work to blend it with his Korean heritage, and the tiny but ambitious restaurant he runs in Brooklyn. "I want to do something new all the time. I'm not interested in being famous or being rich, but I want to have an interesting life."

His mission: make French-Korean food accessible beyond the fusion tropes, and show what Korean cooking can really be.
