It’s a rare event for any foreigner to be in contact with the leader-recluse Kim Jong-il of North Korea. But making pizza for him? Indeed. Here’s the article: [BBC: Making pizza for Kim Jong-il]:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/3559266.stm . It’s worth a listen online. The audio segment(I made pizza for Kim Jong-il) is supposed to air on [BBC’s Radio 3]:http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/ at around 2:40pm PDT, but I will probably forget. If you do listen, post a comment here, or on your own blog(and give me a trackback so I can read it).
While North Korea has [horrible prison camps]:http://www.hrnk.org/hiddengulag/toc.html , [horrifying human rights]:http://www.nkfreedom.org/important_nk_topics.html, and [virtually no freedom for individuals]:http://www.pbs.org/wnet/wideangle/shows/russia/map_nkorea.html , at least their great leader still gets to fly in foreign chefs to teach cooking cuisine to selected chefs. (sigh)
