Quick & Easy Korean Cooking
Consider sitting all the way down to a sumptuous and fragrant dinner of dumpling soup with rice desserts after a protracted day of labor. And a hot summer afternoon simply begs for a picnic basket stocked with chilled cucumber soup, sensitive chook skewers with inexperienced onions, and seaweed rice rolls. Using components which can be effectively to be had and techniques already familiar to domestic cooks, those korean specialties can easily be dinner any night time of the week. With appetizers and snacks, soups and warm pots, facet dishes, entrees, rice, noodles, and an entire chapter committed to kimchi, quick & easy korean cooking will bring new flavors to the dinner desk.

I really enjoyed this book. It's well put together, the recipes are simple and quick to prepare, the photography is beautiful, and the dishes are quite tasty. Is this the definitive authority on Korean cuisine? Probably not. But if you'd like to get your feet wet working with Korean flavors, this might be a good choice for you. There's a nice variety of recipes here. The barbecued pork ribs are wonderful -- I served them with the green onion pancakes, also very tasty. I guess I'm lucky: I live in an area where there are a number of Asian markets, and most supermarkets have an excellent international foods section, so finding the ingredients for these dishes isn't an issue. You might find you need to substitute -- you won't get exactly the same flavors or results, but you'll probably come close enough. I'm giving this five stars because it succeeds at its intended purpose: a well presented collection of simple recipes that allow a home cook to experience Korean foods without heading for a Korean restaurant.-L.

I can barely set this cookbook down for 5 minutes before I want to pick it up again and start something new! It's simple, elegant, and full of useful, tasty recipes. It is worth a lot to find a good cookbook that does not confuse the cook. This cookbook combines a definite awareness of Korean flavor combinations and cooking styles, presented in a way that Non-Koreans can easily pick up on. I love going down to the Korean market to pick out ingredients for my next project. There is nothing daunting here (where do I buy a pint of oxblood?) and everything is well-explained. People with lots of experience with Korean food may complain that the recipes are overly simplified or inauthentic, but as I said, they're tasty and definitely makeable. I do not have years of intimate experience with the nuances and regional variations of Korean cuisine, so this basic cookbook serves my kitchen perfectly well. Someone interested in making their own fermented sides and kimchi might also want a more extensive guide. They can easily be found.-Ben H.
A wonderful cookbook; full of colorful pictures, descriptions, and directions are clear and easy to follow. I like the variety of food choices. This book is a treasure in my kitchen!-Salawick Chick
