Last week was a cultural kaleidoscope at Palm Crest Elementary School, as students experienced the culture of 18 different countries in a four day celebration. The multi-cultural event began on Monday, when the students attended a classical Korean music and dance performance, presented by Don Kim, Minjung Kim, Kyunghee Baik and Eunah Choi. Before the dancing began, Don Kim questioned the students' geographic, linguistic and cultural knowledge of Korea. The group performed five traditional dances, including the Flower Crown dance, which would be performed at the Royal Palace.

When I think about Roy Choi, I miss my friend, Laura Canales. Choi is the Korean-American, Los Angeles chef who reinvented the food truck with his gourmet Kogi BBQ Korean taco trucks. He is the author of “L.A. Son,” a thoughtful cookbook/autobiography. Laura was a La Cañada Flintridge resident, past president of the Thursday Club and gourmet home-fusion chef. As a Greek American, Laura knew feta, tiropitakia and mint like the back of her hand. When she married into the Canales family, her culinary repertoire skyrocketed.
