Until recently Korean food was something of a mystery to the western world but it’s now on everyone’s list of ‘must eats’. The Korean chilli flake (gochugaru) appears in many of the dishes - they have a lovely, sweet and slightly smoky flavour with just a touch of heat.

To begin, we’ve got kimchi pancakes (buchimgae) served with two of Korea’s favourite dipping sauces - the first (known as ssamjang) is tangy and spicy and the second (known as choganjang) is sweet, salty and gingery. For the main event we’ve got a comforting chicken stew served with sticky rice and a quick version of kimchi, the ubiquitous fermented cabbage dish.

Brilliant, glad you enjoyed it Jessica!


Delicious Korean food - just like my Korean friend makes! I fermented the kimchi overnight on the radiator for a more authentic taste.
