WELCOME TO GOTHAM GROVE
Here you will find delicious food ingredients made by small Korean producers following traditional methods. Gotham Grove was inspired by our mutual love of food and travel and a desire to contribute to the local culinary landscape. Through this collection, we hope to share our favorite foods that we encounter on our travels, specifically from Korea, and the stories behind them. All of the products you find will be 100% natural products, made by small producers using local Korean ingredients. Having both worked with or as small business owners, we are strong believers in the small business community. And our hope is to support our partners not just by selling their products, but by building a community to that will create and share new stories. We hope you enjoy the products as much as we do and that you'll let us know about the exciting new ways that you use them.
Jenn & Rob, Founding Partners
JIYUN JENNIFER YOO
Growing up between Korea and the U.S., travel has always been part of Jenn's life. She and her husband John, a partner at a restaurant, fill their suitcases with local goods whenever they travel, using their friends as guinea pigs as they incorporate the new finds into everyday dishes.
Prior to serving as an aforementioned guinea pig, Rob spent time importing and distributing beer in East Africa. He speaks several languages unintelligibly, partly thanks to a childhood spent in Vienna, though his cooking is only slightly better than his Korean.
