Being a fan of so many Korean dishes, I was excited to get this Kindle Edition of Seoul Food Korean Cookbook: Korean Cooking from Kimchi and Bibimbap to Fried Chicken and Bingsoo by the Author, Naomi Imatome-Yun.
Just the thought of being able to replicate my favorite Korean Barbeque recipe made me smile. I like that there are 135 recipes to try in this cookbook as well as tips, etiquette and traditional customs. I really like that what I thought would be pretty difficult if not impossible traditional, modern and international recipes to create myself at home, really is possible in this cookbook. I enjoyed reading about the "you are what you eat" concept of Korean cooking as much more than just a meal but a lifestyle. I love the variety of these spicy bold dishes! I like that with a rice cooker, stir fry pan, segmented serving dishes, cooking chopsticks, grill pan, a few good knives, kimchi storing containers and earthenware bowls I can start to create these marvelous Korean dishes along with the Pantry Essentials that I found surprising quite easily at the market and online. I like that the Author named some of her favorite brands because it helped me choose from the large variety available to me. From how to cook the perfect rice, preparation of stocks sauces and marinades to step by step guidance through these recipes made it a wonderful experience to try these recipes at home with my family. I was intimidated to every even think about trying to create authentic global recipes but this Author has written a book that was easy to follow and has a lot of information, not just recipes. I feel confident that I can follow the recipes and surprise my family and friends with some Seoul food.
