If you are interested in Korean food, there are some Korean cookbooks out there that are really good. This is not one of them. I don't know where she got these recipes, but they are simply wrong. I have yet to see one that either sounds good, or authentic. Not only are the ingredients not right, the methods of preparation is incorrect. If you made the cabbage or eggplant Kim Chi as she states, they would be nothing but mush. She gives a recipe for Mandu that says how to make the wrappers, but not for the filling. I have no idea why. I think someone was messing with her when they gave her these recipes. My wife and I still wonder if she has tried these herself. I love Korean food and this is my thirteenth Korean cookbook. I would recommend any other one before this one. Including the one that has all the ingredients in grams. Save your money, unless you plan on purchasing this for a joke on someone.
