I am so glad I got to share my recipes with the good folks at Carolina Farmin'. We had quite a turnout for the event! I was a little surprised at how many people already loved Korean food... and even MORE surprised at how many newbies fell in love with Korean food!
I made a number of dishes, including bulgogi, chapchae, mandu, cucumber kimchi, and mung beans... I tried to make some of the more popular Korean dishes for anyone new to Korean cuisine. I didn't have ANY leftovers! I couldn't believe how much people ate. It made me so happy!
If you live in Wilmington, there are a couple of restaurants to check out. Put Kabuki and Wasabi on your radar. They are not Korean restaurants, but they are Korean-owned (I believe) and serve Korean food. If you like beef, you can't go wrong with Korean BBQ. also known as bulgogi. If you're adventurous, try kimchi. It's a Korean staple and served along rice at every meal.
Scroll down to see the recipes I cooked. I also posted some video links to help demonstrate (thanks to my friend, Vicky, for introducing me to Maangchi!) Maangchi is pretty much the best Korean food blogger in the world. Her recipes may differ from mine, but watching her will provide some visuals if you're going to try this at home.
