"The Korean Table" features some of the most delicious Seoul food around! Here is a collection of recipes that are not only new, but also fresh and healthy yet robust and intensely flavored. Poised to become America's next favorite Asian cuisine, Korean food is rapidly gaining in popularity throughout the country. Korean recipes such as bulgogi (Korean barbecue), kimchi (pickled spicy cabbage) and bibimbap (mixed rice) are only a few of the savory, authentic meals that are taking the food world by storm. "The Korean Table" is a wonderful new cookbook that shows American cooks how to create the tempting flavors of Korean cuisine at home. Chung and Samuels, a Korean and an American, team up to guide home cooks through the process of making Korean meals without fuss, multiple trips to specialty markets or expensive online shopping. Along with showing you how to create complete Korean meals from start to finish--from Scallion Pancakes to Korean Dumplings (mandu) and Simmered Beef Short Ribs--this Korean cookbook also includes information about how you can add the flavors of a Korean kitchen to your meal in numerous quick and easy ways every day, using condiments, side dishes, salad dressings, sauces and more.
