Su Scott for Pocha: Simple Korean Food from the Streets of Seoul, a Toppings and Co Event

29 May @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Su Scott

An evening of Korean Street Food from UK based Korean chef and author of the critically acclaimed Rice Table


Join Topping and Co to celebrate the first ever cookbook on Korean pocha culture, complete with a demo and tastings, with Su Scott.

Pocha; short for pojangmacha, which literally translates as ‘covered wagon’; is a tented or tarpaulin-covered stall, bar or market vendor serving up cheap and unfussy Korean comfort food, snacks and drinks.

In Pocha, Su Scott is going home to the streets where she grew up and the food that shaped her. From daybreak to sundown, 80 delicious and playful recipes take you on a journey through the narrow streets of Seoul and sheltered halls of tarpaulin-roofed markets where dust motes and steam glitter in the glow of orange tungsten lights.

This is unfussy, easy, comforting food from a country that has perfected late night eating and drinking culture. From Corn Dogs and Fried Chicken to Kimchi Pancakes and Perilla Oil Noodles for slurping (and perhaps some ice-cold soju to wash it all down), Pocha invites you to bring the beating heart of Korea’s food scene into your kitchen.

Filled with vibrant location photography from Seoul that weaves a tale of Su’s touching return to her home country, Pocha is an electric and tender cookbook.


“Su has written a beautiful account of how food can help rebuild culture from treasured memories, how it conveys love and connection, and how it can ground us when we feel untethered. The recipes are totally tantalising – and thanks to Su’s guidance, entirely achievable even for novices.” – Tim Anderson
