An interesting article about Kimchi by the Dallas Morning News. Check it out!

 

Kimchi alert! This charming 'comic book with recipes' makes Korean cooking a snap

 

By Leslie Brenner | The Dallas Morning News | Published: 29 August 2016 04:00 PM

 

If you want to learn to cook Korean food and you're starting from scratch, the first thing to do is find a very large jar. The second is to procure a copy of Cook Korean!: A Comic Book with Recipes. But no need to commit just yet; you can try a few of our adapted recipes first.

 

The jar, which needs to be glass and very large — like 96 ounces large — is for making kimchi, which is not only delicious (and super-healthy) on its own and an ingredient in many Korean dishes; it's also a hugely important part of Korean culture.

 

The book, engagingly written and illustrated by Robin Ha, a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design with a bachelor of fine arts in illustration, makes learning this cuisine — which might otherwise be daunting if you're a first-timer — approachable and fun. That's because she uses her talents as a comic book artist to explain and illustrate techniques and walk you through the recipes. 

 

But don't worry: Even if you don't want to make your own kimchi (which you can always buy), you can still jump in and turn out some terrific Korean dishes with Ha, who was born in South Korea, as your guide. If you're anything like me, you'll be hooked after making just a couple of recipes. After you cook three or four, you'll even start to feel like an honest-to-goodness Korean cook.
