Those of you who have been reading for a while know that I spent the last six months or so searching for a great Korean cookbook that was written in KOREAN. Well, my search is over! I now have not one great Korean cookbook written in Korean but THREE cookbooks. I’m super excited!!
The cookbook I really wanted – 며느리에게 주는 요리책 – is also available in English in Canada but the Korean version isn’t available here. So I reached out to my fellow bloggers to see if anyone could recommend a way for me to purchase it. And one lovely Korean food blogger replied that while she didn’t know where I could buy it in Toronto, her sister could bring me a copy from Korea if I didn’t mind waiting for her next visit. I was blown away by this kindness by someone I had never met (and by the fact that she was in Toronto too) and a couple of months later we met up for drinks and she gave me the cookbook. I can’t thank Grace from Crazy Korean Cooking enough for the cookbooks!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! 감사합니다! Remember, drinks are on me next time!
But her kindness didn’t stop with just the one Korean cookbook! I also was given 엄마보다 친절한 요리책
And 양념 공식.
I can’t wait until I move into my new apartment so I have time to start learning from them. 며느리에게 주는 요리책 is going to be challenging as it’s a little above my Korean reading level at the moment but I’ve always studied harder when I have a strong incentive. The other two cookbooks are easier to read so I might start with them while I learn more cooking words.
I had a random brainstorm the other day, I think it would be fun to pull my own Julie Powell and cook all the recipes and post them on YouTube. What do you think? Would you like to see me read and cook from a Korean cookbook on YouTube?
