Meiko Krishok of Detroit Guerrilla Food spoke in an in-depth interview with Metro Times on her food inspirations, making a home in Detroit, and her views on food as medicine. "I grew up with two really different food traditions from both sides," she tells the Times:

My mother's side, obviously, was a lot of Korean food. My father's side was mostly Italian, because my paternal grandma was Italian, and she was the main cook on that side of the family. Maybe because so much of it was coming from my grandmothers, it felt like something filled with love and care, and so I have a lot of pretty vibrant food memories from growing up.

The article includes an exclusive recipe for "Green Soup." You can find Detroit Guerilla Food on at 2700 Vermont Street on Thursday evenings.
