Meet Chuck Kuan, The Runcible Spoon's Spring 2014 Intern!

Meet Chuck Kuan. I met him on Facebook and he asked if we offered internships. I said, do you know that we are a zine? And he said yes but he still wanted to be our intern anyway, so he's the coolest. Let's learn more about our dear intern Chuck. I have never met him but I think he's a star. 

1. How did you find out about the Runcible Spoon? Why did you want to intern for us? 
I found the zine while reading about some food book fair that I (in the typical Chuck manner) found out about only after it ended. Not only do I like collaging a lot, I also kind of "pretend cook" a lot of the times, so it seems like a really good match.

2. What is your day gig? (Student, traveling magician, mouse?) 
Actually I'm a disillusioned psychology student trying to find interesting, non-psychology, paper-related things to do.

3. What kind of experience do you want to get out of an internship with a zine about fake recipes? 
Food is about storytelling and I guess because Runcible Spoon is about fake recipes the boundaries are limitless! I want to and I think I will have a lot of fun!

4. What meal would you like to eat before you die? 
Serious questions need serious answers– I would like to go to Fäviken, but hopefully it wouldn't be me paying for it.

5. What's the worst thing you've ever put into your mouth? 
A LOT of asian pickled foods aren't really for human consumption I think. Simply vile.

6. What's your approach when it comes to cooking? 
When in doubt, make it Asian! Use mirin, hondashi, gochujang, miso, etc. Honestly that's why if I don't follow a recipe things kind of all taste the same.

7. Say something about yourself in 4 1/2 words
Eating // all the time 

Welcome Chuck! Don't ever spell his last name like "Kwan" or "Kwon." It's "Kuan." Follow him on Twitter here
