Following Hurricane Sandy, Red Hook’s Korean-influenced The Good Fork suffered major damage and an uncertain future. Luckily for both the restaurant’s owners and hungry Brooklynites, they’re back and stronger than ever, and they’ve got a new cookbook to show for it.

A memoir as well as a cookbook, The Good Fork delves into how Brooklyn chef and restauranteur Sohui Kim and her husband, Ben Schneider, a carpenter, built a community and a restaurant around comfort foods with global flavors.

Dishes such as pork dumplings, Korean-style steak and eggs with kimchee rice, and buttermilk fried chicken and waffles draw on a variety of cuisines, including Korean, American and Italian.

The neighborhood gem, now almost a decade old, was the pair’s first foray into the restaurant world. The cookbook follows their second eatery, a Korean barbecue establishment called Insa.
