TikTok Star Joanne Lee Molinaro (a.ok.a. the Korean Vegan) Has a Kitchen Filled with Significant Items

Joanne Lee Molinaro discovered a new world in July 2020 when she started sharing her family’s incredible story with the world while preparing her favorite Korean recipes. Best known as a Korean vegan on TikTok, she found solace in her North Korean roots in 60-second story-time videos during the coronavirus pandemic. And that has taken them to amazing heights, including author of the Korean Vegan Cookbook: Reflections and Recipes from Omma’s Kitchen.

In addition to their favorite Korean dishes, the cookbook also offers life lessons that have shaped them today. She got to know Joanne’s almost 3 million followers through newly invented recipes, and when she invited Good Housekeeping to a tour of her kitchen, it could not be denied that she was just as conscious of the room as she was of her food.

In the video above, the 42-year-old Chicago native shares that she places items strategically in her kitchen for easy access while cooking. Your rice cooker and various grains stand side by side; The same goes for their baking tools and ingredients. For reasons of accessibility, Joanne often reaches for the cupboard above her stove, which stores essentials such as extra virgin olive oil, sesame oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce and more.

Most importantly, she keeps her fridge stocked with an assortment of homemade kimchi and lots of kale. And of course Joanne always has homemade sauces like spicy garlic sauce and Korean barbecue sauce, which she uses “almost every day in some shape or form”.

Additionally, the former attorney is all about presentations, and when it comes to sharing her latest recipe on TikTok, she pulls out stunning arts and crafts plates and bowls to display. When the opportunity presents itself, Joanne also honors her heritage through dishes using Korean earthenware bowls for soups and stews, Korean bowls for rice, and Korean spoons and chopsticks.

Really a useful kitchen!
