5.0 out of 5 stars Try your hand at Korean cuisine~ February 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I got my first "real job," my office was in the Mid-Wilshire district of Los Angeles. This area is home to the city's Korea Town. I was first able to experience Korean cuisine during that time.

I was excited when I came across this book. It reminds me of a meals from days past and affords me the opportunity to try my own hand a creating Korean dishes. This book contains a nice selection of Korean dishes.

I need to tell you that much of Korean cuisine contains copious amounts of gochugaru (Korean chile powder) and gochurang (Korean chile paste). If you like spicy food, then Korean cuisine is right for you.

But all is not lost if you do not like hot foods; I sometimes shy away from them myself. There are a few dishes that are milder: "Bulgogi" composed of thin slices of beef marinated in sweet rice wine, soy sauce, and brown sugar (and a few other things). Also, "Jap Chae" which is a savory stir-fried glass noodle dish.

Included in this book is a recipe for a common lunch dish called "Bibimbop." This is rice dish topped with beef, egg, and vegetables. With all sorts of goodies, this dish has a little bit of everything. This dish is usually topped with a fried egg.

This e-cookbook has an active table of contents, but all of the dishes are listed by their Korean names without an English translation. This makes it a bit more difficult for non-Korean speakers to navigate the book.

One error I noticed was in the list of ingredients for "Samgyupsal." This is a grilled meat recipe using pork belly slices. The capital letter "S" is listed before how much to use of a "cup of gochurang." I'm not sure if this refers to a "small" cup or if this is a typo. Regardless, even a small cup measurement of Korean chile paste would make for one very hot dish!

I thoroughly enjoyed the recipes in this book. They were easy to make and tasted great. I recommend it to anyone interested in Korean culture; those who listen to K-pop, watch K-dramas, and even anyone who just wants to try something different.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am keeping this on my kindle! March 4, 2013
By Matthew

This seems to be a faithful and loving documentation of genuine, home-style, family recipes of a Korean home maker. There are plenty of other resources out there for the aspiring cook, but this one is a keeper.

Mashitta! A Collection of Simple South Korean Recipes by Cooking Penguin Four Stars

This book has recipes for the standard fare of Kimchi which "is the most popular dish of South Korea and is rightly so. This spicy, fermented vegetable side dish is present in almost every meal and encapsulates the essence of the South Korean taste. It combines almost all of the basic seasonings - red peppers, soy sauce, mustard, vinegar, ginger and wine."

There are recipes for side dishes, main dishes & rice & soup dishes. There are clear measurements & preparation instructions included.

It does require a lot of spices & seasonings that might not be readily available without access to an Asian grocery store. I've been fortunate to discover several places online that do sell them.

The recipes pictured in the book that I'm eager to try are: Korean Fried Chicken, Doo Boo Joo-rim (braised tofu), Sigumchi namul (a side dish made with spinach flavored with soy sauce), & Hobak jeon or zucchini pancake.

It's a well designed & helpful cookbook. I gave it four stars.

I received a free kindle edition from Amazon & it was a pleasant surprise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book May 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has easy to follow recipes with nice photos for almost all recipes. There are a nice variety of recipes and if you have access to an Asian market you should be able to make the dishes easily. For some things you might be able to substitute or find bottled or canned in a large grocery store's oriental section. There are beef and chicken dishes as well as eel and squid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots to like July 7, 2014
By Lumi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There's a lot of things to like about this book. The recipes are well presented, easy to understand, and include nice photos. The book is well organized. I enjoyed learning about the foods enjoyed in a different culture. For that, it has value. I think I'm too much of a chicken to try any of the recipes though. They are so different from what I'm used to!

A nice selection of types of foods for all meals and occasions using authentic ingredients. The only ingredient I am unable to find is korean radish, but daikon works just as well.
