New PBS Series - Korean cuisne w/Jean Georges Vongerichten and his wife

So have read some articles on the internet about the new PBS series called Kimchi Chronicles which is suppose to be Jean Georges Vongerichten and his wife doing a 13 episode series on Korean cuisine... similar to the Batali+Paltrow series on Spanish food.

I just checked the PBS website and can't find anything under their program listing. The series is suppose to be airing this month. Anyone know when/what time??

    1. I heard May and January. Let's hope it's January, because I am really looking forward to this show. Great to see more people are recognizing Korea's wonderful cuisine.

      1. Seems like it will now air Summer 2011.

        1. It is about time! Jean-Georges has been one of my favourites for ages. I have such respect for his knowledge and skill. Hope we'll get it here in Canada, too?!

            Oh no I hope this does not make kimchi a trendy food, I like being the only person at work, at home, in the family, in the neighborhood, in the city......... that loves kimchi

          2. I saw it yesterday (Sunday, July 26) on PBS. You get to see his unsmiling wife flaunt their wealth and famous friends. And then they eat.

              Bummer. I was hoping it wouldn't be a vanity project. :(

              Maybe it'll get better...

                Yeah, but they've got a private plane!

                  Silly me. I almost forgot that ridiculous money + celebrity friends = instant cred. :)

                I just saw the rice episode, and did not detect any of this flaunting.
