I live near a Korean restaurant in London and it has really opened my eyes to Korean cuisine. Previously, my understanding of Korean food was limited to Seoul Garden and Korean bbq. I realise now that kimchi is the basis of their cooking, and not just as a side dish. I bought a Korean cookbook from Kino and there are a number of dishes in that book that I have tried at that Korean restaurant. And so the experimenting begins.

Note: don’t add too much water…
