Try The World: A Taste Of KOREA

16/06/2017

I love Gochujang.  I also love doenjang, ganjang, sesame oil, and gochugaru:.  I think these ingredients are the foundation of Korean cuisine.” Chef Hooni Kim

Imaging a table overflowing with freshly grilled meats, dozens of tiny bowls filled with different pickles and sauces, and dishes of heaping warm rice. Not only is Korea famous for its traditional dishes such as kimchi and bibimbap, it is also known for its natural and architectural wonders, such as serene gardens and intricate royal palaces Try The World – Korea Box

“Koreans traditionally make a distinction between the “tongue taste” and the “hand taste” of a food. What hand taste is, I understood all at once, is the taste of love.” Michael Pollan, Cooked

    I hadn’t eaten much Koran cooking, that is until we moved to our current neighborhood. Right next door is the loveliest Korean woman and I tell you what, she cooks some pretty incredible meals. The funniest part? She cooks most everything in the garage because she doesn’t like the smell in the house. So whenever we go over for dinner she’ll say “let me grab the slow cooker from outside” She makes me smile every time!
