Recipe of the day #4: Bibimbap

Image

Bibimbap has to be one of my favourite Korean dishes. It’s got lots of yummy things in it, it can be spiced to your heart’s content (I can’t handle extra spicy food, ugh) and, the best part: comes with an egg on top of it! Food doesn’t get much better than this, I’m sure.

Recipe of the day #3: 계란찜 (steamed eggs)

Standard

I found this on Lauren Kilberg’s Facebook page, saved it in my drafts folder and forgot all about it. But since I’ve started playing Pucca’s restaurant, I’ve developed a horrible craving for Korean cuisine and was reminded of a few food-related posts I had saved. 계란찜 (gyeran jjim), one of the many different types of 반찬 (banchan or side dishes) is a casserole of steamed eggs and, well, I don’t even need to tell you how delicious it is, right? Just seeing the ingredients does the trick of leaving me starving!

Oh, the illustration was made by Anna Lee.

Recipe of the day #2: Kimchi

Standard

I think I’ve already mentioned how hard it is to come across Korean markets here in São Paulo. It’s not like it was the easiest thing in the world in London, but I knew a couple really close to where I studied, so dropping by was pretty effortless. Besides, I’d get my 김치 (kimchi) fix from one of the restaurants nearby and there was no need to buy the ready stuff to consume at home. In here, it takes me two buses and one hour at least to get to the nearest store or restaurant. I mean, just thinking of this whole ordeal makes me tired. So I thought, “Why not learn to make this staple of Korean cuisine?” and went online looking for an easy recipe. I found this which is not as easy as I would have liked, but still pretty do-able, I guess (or maybe I’m in a brave mood). Haven’t given it a try yet, because, well, I do have to go to the market to buy 고추장 (gochujang), but I intend to do it this Saturday. Hopefully, it’ll turn out fine enough for me to blog about it. Fingers crossed!
