Are you looking to broaden your home cooking horizons beyond Mexican and Italian dishes? Look no further than Simply Korean, a Korean cookbook that is truly simple.
I have never cooked, and rarely eat, Korean food. But I’m tired of my usual dinner menu. This cookbook translates traditionally obscure ingredients into items at your neighborhood grocery. Many of the recipes used ingredients I already have at home. Other items were easy to substitute like thin-sliced carne asada for bulgogi meat. The recipes themselves also include westernized substitutions like cornstarch for glutinous rice flour.
Though none of the recipes included nutritional information or indicated special dietary restrictions, full-color photographs were provided. Overall, Simply Korean is an easy and inexpensive way to include some Korean food into your life. 4 stars!
