For my next post for The Moody Cook, I wanted to share with you where my love for Korean food came from. Below, I share my story, photos and recipes of some of my favorite Korean dishes. Enjoy.


Tarik Moody Special to
Originally from Atlanta, Tarik Moody graduated in 1996 from Howard University's School Of Architecture in Washington D.C. He practiced architecture in Detroit and Minneapolis.

While working full­-time in the architecture industry in Minneapolis, he became a volunteer for community radio station KFAI. Eventually he co­-hosted the station's long­running "Groove Garden" show. That led to other shows, including "Rhythm Lab Radio" on Minnesota Public Radio's music station called The Current. In 2006, he was approached by 88Nine RadioMilwaukee.

Tarik made the leap from architecture to radio, and now works as the evening music host, and digital and online community manager for 88Nine RadioMilwaukee. He still hosts the award-­winning "Rhythm Lab Radio" on 88Nine RadioMilwaukee and still has a passion for architecture and design.

Tarik served for 14 years in the Army Reserves. His last position was as a captain in a Public Affairs unit outside of Chicago.
