Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Seasoned red pepper paste (Gochujang yangnyum)

    • TrishaCP on April 03, 2017

      I subbed fish sauce for oyster sauce, since I almost never have oyster sauce on hand, but I always have fish sauce. I was happy with my sub, but I did make the smaller batch recipe, which uses no more than a teaspoon anyway.

  • Chicken and vegetables in a sweet and spicy sauce (Dak chim)

    • TrishaCP on April 03, 2017

      This was great, and easy to throw together if you prepare the book's seasoned red pepper paste in advance. (It also calls for the book's simple sweet soy base sauce, but I subbed kecap manis and would absolutely do so again.) Like the best Korean braises, the potatoes were the best part for me, soaking up all of the sweet and spicy braising liquid. My one regret is that I didn't have pattypan or another summer squash on hand- they always become luxuriously soft in a braise like this, and I missed that textural component, but there is always next time.

Are you a fan of Thai or Japanese foods, and interested in trying something new? If so, The Korean Table is the cookbook for you! 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. Dishes 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 on-line 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-The Korean Table also includes information about how you can add the flavors of Korea to your meal in numerous quick and easy ways every day, using condiments, side dishes, salad dressings, sauces and more.
