I draw inspiration from my Korean background. Even though my training and technique is French, I try to find inspiration from my Korean childhood and ingredients that I grew up with. I grew up in a Korean household and we ate rice wrapped in seaweed toasted in sesame. The seaweed is called ghim in Korean. This chocolate version is a seaweed ganache topped with caramelized white and black sesame seeds. - Chef Angela Borah
