Cook Books on Korean Food

A Korean Mother's Cooking Notes by Chang Sun-Young
Translated in English by Kim Miza
Published by EWHA Womans University Press
ISBN 89-73000-299-6 23590
Price 12.000 KRW

This is a very nice cook book. The style in which it is written is easy to read, as if your mother tells you how to prepare some kind of food. A lot of extra notes with experiences, another way of preparing or a warning "not to do" something. The recipes are divided in chapters like soup, rice, broiled food, pan-fried food etc. Also an explanation is written for every chapter why some food should be served and when. The book gives you a lot of information about the Korean Cooking Culture but tells you also something about the author, a progressive and emancipated person. (written by Christina, 21/06/05)

Traditional Korean Cooking by Noh Chin-hwa.
Published by Hollym Corporation; Publishers.
Price:9.000 KRW

The book focusses on snacks and basic side dishes in a traditional way. I bought this book because I wanted to learn more about the beautiful Nine-Section Dish. Of course you also will find recipies for making Kim Chi and Rice Cake in it. It is written in English and has a nice glossary on the last pages about all kinds of Korean ingredients. It also contains some information on the Korean diet and table setting as well preparation tips.
