Overall it's one of the best tools in my kimchee making kitchen. Another I recommend is Duk Suni's cookbook. Please avoid the Kimchee Cookbook and Flavors of Korea though, as the recipes in them are vague, missing steps, and or just not authentic.
this book's layout is similar to the wei-chuan series and noh chin-hwa' book practical korean cooking. they all have gorgeous photos of all the recipes and photos of instructions. i also liked at the end of this book it had cooking tips, measurment conversions, cooking methods, and korean table etiquitte.
i love the tofu casserole with miso, and the boiled potatos with beef- well i leave the beef out. they're easy to prepare and i like the fact that it has tip's scattered about the different recipes- for example preparing live clams for cooking by soaking in salt water. I already knew to do this but it was a helpful reminder.
fabulous book- even if you don't intend to actually cook anything!
But it's a strange hybrid: it's a Japanese take on Korean food for the Western palate. The recipes are not exactly authentic, they are filtered through the Japanese worldview of what Westerners want. And it clearly needed to be run through an editor, as some sentences make no sense at all and some of the instructions are far from clear.
It's hard to recommend this book for the idiosyncratic recipes, unless you are interested in making Korean food like a Japanese housewife from the 80s.
The author says that "most of the recipes contained in this book have been adapted to Western style". It is true.
Excellent pictures but finally unuseful if you want real Korean recipes.

A lot of the negative comments for this book center on two facts: MSG is listed as an ingredient in some recipes, and the ingredients are often listed by their Japanese name. Read morePublished on December 29, 2011 by Kai
