Korean Food Made Simple
Chef and food writer Judy Joo developed a love of Korean food at an early age as she watched her mother cook authentic dishes from the region. In this series she aims to make healthy Korean food quick and easy for home cooks to prepare themselves. Joo travels to South Korea to take a culinary journey that has her visiting some of the people and places that inspire her cuisine. She heads to the capital city of Seoul to explore the city's bustling food markets and fashionable dining trends, checks out the seafood found at the southern beaches of Busan, and heads to the food festivals and tea plantations of the Mokpo region. When she gets back in the kitchen, Joo puts a simple twist on dishes inspired by her travels that can be made with a few Korean cupboard staples. Crispy Korean fried chicken, slow-roasted pork belly bossam and kimchee fried rice are among the recipes she prepares.
