To The Cookbook
We’ve been waiting for My Korea for a while now. It had to happen, we just didn’t know when it would happen.
Inside there are 90 recipes that all spark from the “culinary trinity” which is the core of Korean food (doenjang –fermented soybean paste, ganjang –soy sauce and gochukang –red chili paste).
They allow for the deep exciting savory tastes that you find throughout the dishes he offers.
We loved his kimchi, particularly, which is one of the most interesting and balanced styles of kimchi that we have ever tasted.
It all comes to life on the page with photographs that you can almost taste.
They are complemented with intelligent and insightful notes on each dish to help you get the exact savory notes that were intended.
If you like Korean food, you’ll love My Korea. If you haven’t tried much in the way of Korean food, you NEED My Korea.
