Amazon has the Kindle edition of Cook Korean!: A Comic Book with Recipes by Robin Ha on sale for $1.99.


We have this book and personally recommend it - our tween child was excited to cook from it!

https://www.amazon.com/Cook-Korea...B016GRP9V0


4.9 stars in 157 customer reviews. (think about that for a second - every review is 4 or 5 star)


A New York Times bestseller

A charming introduction to the basics of Korean cooking in graphic novel form, with 64 recipes, ingredient profiles, and more, presented through light-hearted comics.

Fun to look at and easy to use, this unique combination of cookbook and graphic novel is the ideal introduction to cooking Korean cuisine at home. Robin Ha's colorful and humorous one-to three-page comics fully illustrate the steps and ingredients needed to bring more than sixty traditional (and some not-so-traditional) dishes to life.

In these playful but exact recipes, you'll learn how to create everything from easy kimchi (mak kimchi) and soy garlic beef over rice (bulgogi dupbap) to seaweed rice rolls (gimbap) and beyond. Friendly and inviting, Cook Korean! is perfect for beginners and seasoned cooks alike who want to try their hand at this wildly popular cuisine.

Each chapter includes personal anecdotes and cultural insights from Ha, providing an intimate entry point for those looking to try their hand at this cuisine.

Korean ingredients are cheap at Asian markets, especially H-Mart. This book has a really good kimchi jiggae recipe. I usually use my maangchi book or YouTube videos for other Korean recipes.

Because the entire line of dishes can't be made with just ground beef and cheese.

Expensive is relative. If you what you're saying is fresh ingredients generally cost more, then yes it is expensive.

Genrerally speaking Korean food is actually dirt cheap to make. The problem with these cook books is they tend to feature dishes not even Korean people eat regularly, especially the protein-heavy dishes.

Most day to day dishes are just a combination of veggies, chili paste, a little soy sauce, sesame oil, beef/seafood stock,tofu, etc.. lb for lb it's some of the cheapest stuff you can buy.

For example, green onion is a staple in almost every dish. My grandmother used to harvest it from the side of the road where I grew up in Maryland. It's literally everywhere.

The heart of real Korean food is simple, long-keeping and body-warming. So it translates into a lot of stews and fermented veggies. Stuff like kkalbi ( grilled short ribs) and bulgogi (marinated short rib slices) are not things one would eat every night.

It would be like a Korea picking up an American cookbook and thinking it's perfectly normal to eat an entire lobster dinner 5 days a week then wondering why American food is so expensive.

Wow, this is the best cookbook I have ever seen! I always hate cookbooks that don't show pictures of the finished product. This goes above and beyond. Hopefully she writes another cookbook in the future!

If by "Gator Nation" you mean FL, yeah, that's not where Koreans go to retire! LMAO We all go West Coast - much easier to fly to Korea from LA.


(Interestingly, with the new Kia plant build in LaGrange, GA a mini K-Town is sprouting up there...)
