Korean Cooking Site .. SWEET! 밥 먹었어요?

Postby ddong_gae » July 18th, 2008 12:18 pm

I was a chef for 13 years before changing professions. The food industry is ***CENSORED*** but eating make a great hobby, and in Korea eating is practically a national pastime. I have no idea how Koreans stay so ***CENSORED*** thin! Being that I was a chef, I love to learn about new food.

So for others who want to know how they do it ....

Dong-gae, I agree, the food industry is ***CENSORED***! I wasn't a chef, but my mother worked for the Scottsdale Culinary Institute for a few years, and we saw lots of different types of suffering, and the making and breaking of many chefs.

I think Koreans stay thin because 95% of what they eat is vegetable! Try to get an American to make an interesting dish out of bean sprouts, and he'll cry and run away.

Uh...you're right, they do. I'm sorry for mispelling your name, ddong-underscore-gae.

She seems pretty cool, she answers all the comments individually. I have got to try some of that. :P

Ye, maangchi.com is a very good website that teaches how to make Korean dishes.

I noted that the chef host lady likes to use many ingredients in her dishes. I was looking up on the recipe for jjajangmyeon, because I missed the food after back home from Korea. The ingredients she recommended was definitely much more than what I had over there!
