Michael Madal is the creator of Bright colors of Korean food: simple recipes for everyday cooking. He grew up in Sakhalin island, Russia, the place where a huge Korean expat community exists and its cuisine is an essential part of local culture. The cooking recipes were gladly revealed to him by his friend’s grandparents after Michael had performed a ballroom dancing master class to them. Except cooking the composer likes playing guitar, singing and travelling to Japan, South Korea and Thailand. He has a brightly colored she-cat Musya which is also fond of Korean cuisine.
