    I love Maangchi’s recipes! Her food reminds me of my mom’s cooking and the recipes allow me to recreate favorite dishes I didn’t know how to make before! (My mom taught herself how to cook when she came stateside and cooked by taste, no measuring, making it a challenge to learn dishes.) Maangchi’s book has easy to follow instructions, a shopping guide, wonderful history and stories, and gorgeous photography just to highlight a bIt of what’s in this latest cookbook.

I’ve tried a couple of recipes and love them! The stir fried anchovies came out perfectly-a little crunchy and chewy, with a spicy sweetness. The Korean fruit salad was also a big hit and will be a go-to for family get togethers! I can’t wait to try the rest.

    I don’t know if I’ll ever cook Korean dishes— but if I do Maangchi will be my go-to source. This cookbook has beautiful images and step by step guides and ingredient photos in the front to help out when shopping. It’s almost like walking through an international market, and that is a favorite thing to do visiting big cities! Some negatives in regards to this cookbook: if Korean cooking IS your goal, a lot of these recipes are labor intensive and take a long time to make.

Some negatives in regards to this cookbook: if Korean cooking IS your goal, a lot of these recipes are labor intensive and take a long time to make. Especially if you’re making kimchi from scratch. Fermentation is no joke! Additionally, the authentic meal apparently has quite a few side dishes that also need to be prepared to go with the main meal— but it’s left up to the cook to decide. There’s not really a guide for what dishes go well together. You do pick it up while watching Maangchi’s videos on YouTube but going into it cold would probably be a bit confusing. Anyway naysaying aside this is a fantastic book and I loved reading the recipe descriptions and seeing the photos.

    Made the bulgogi and a seafood pancake. The bulgogi is such an easy recipe and came out perfect. The pancake came out well too, and I thought the process outlined in the book was really helpful and resulted in a pancake that looked almost like the photo with minimal effort. I'd only eaten pajeon in restaurants, so it was fun to make my own. I enjoyed reading the headnotes on these recipes, and learned about a lot of foods I hadn't heard of before.

I'm not into most time-consuming projects (especially since K-town is one subway stop away for me), but I definitely appreciated hearing about how certain things like yakju and rice cakes are made. And even though I'm more likely to buy the pre-cleaned shrimp and octopus, I thought it was an interesting addition to have a bunch of back matter about how to prepare those ingredients.

    What an excellent resource on Korean cooking. Maangchi has really included everything you could think of - vegetarian, meat, seafood, soups, sweets, good lunchbox ideas, even street/fusion food, special occasions food, and Buddhist temple food. This book is THICK. While she is definitely a Cook in the sense that she would prefer you don't take shortcuts (make your own stock, roast your own seaweed, etc.), they are available if you need them. All in all, I think I bookmarked two dozen or more reci What an excellent resource on Korean cooking.

    I love Maangchi and her latest cookbook is amazing. The glossy pictures with every recipe drew me in and I could definitely see myself making many of these recipes! Some are Korean classic and some have an American twist, but they all have that Maangchi touch that makes it possible for the home cook to make Korean food in a simple way!

    Maangchi was the first blogger I followed when i first got married to my Korean American husband. She basically taught me my Korean food basics. Love the recipes in this book, easy to follow and delicious as always. Well done Maanghi!

    There are two recipes I'll attempt. Even the ones above my skill level have me considering giving them a go.

    Taught me five sauces that are worth the price of admission for keeping my gojuchang from languishing in the fridge.
