We've been making Korean food once or twice a week for the past month, ever since getting this book out of the library. The specialty ingredients are easily found here in Calgary at the E-Mart, or other Asian groceries, and the food we've made has been delicious! Sure, you have to adjust the recipes a little to account for the altitude, but overall, we've been loving the simple, vibrant flavours of Korean cooking.
The Bean Sprout Rice and Black Bean Noodles are my current favourites, while my wife is a fan of the Spicy Pork. The only thing to watch out for, at least according to our palates, are recipes using dried anchovies. Those things are super fishy, so broths made with them may not appeal to everyone.
Other than that, I highly recommend this cookbook!
Maangchi rules. I've been following her on YouTube for a while and she is as entertaining as she is talented in the kitchen. Best thing is her personality comes through on these pages. I hope you like kimchi because she sure does and her recipes are chock full of inventiveness and simple Asian ingenuity. This book is a must for her fans or anyone even remotely interested in what it takes to collaborate and put together a delicious and authentic Korean dish. Plus she makes it look easy...and fun. So theres that.
Lots of good cultural information and complete cooking instructions. Interesting recipes.
