Kim Sunee, author of "Trails of Crumbs" shares her story about hunger, love and the search for home in her new memoir.

Sunee takes readers on a journey from South Korea to New Orleans.

Kim tells the story of when she was left by her mother on a bench at a crowded marketplace with a fistful of food.

She was found three days later by a policeman with only crumbs in her hand.

Her story is about survival and the kindness of one family in New Orleans who gave Sunee a second chance.

Sunee's 20 year journey will include heartbreak, trials and tribulations, but through it all, she finds solace in cooking and food.
