Sharing kimchi fried rice recipe through music

Kimchi fried rice

By Joseph Lamour | NBC Asian American

Anyone that thinks people shouldn’t play with their food simply doesn’t have the imagination of one uber-creative Spotify user.

On June 30, Noah Conk, a founding UX and product designer for a gaming startup, shared a recipe for kimchi fried rice — aka bokkeum-bap — in a marvelously unique way: through music. By making a playlist on streaming music platform Spotify, Conk, who lives in unceded Ramaytush and Ohlone Land on the San Francisco Peninsula, thoroughly describes his go-to recipe for the Korean comfort food.

“I don’t know why I did this, but I made a Spotify playlist on how to make kimchi fried rice (to the best of my capabilities),” tweeted Conk. Conk clearly describes the ingredients needed, quantity, and how to combine it all in a remarkably descriptive way, considering the recipe is composed solely of published singles by musical artists.
