I have to say, this book moves me. From the first time I held it in my hands and shuffled through the pages, I was smitten. I still feel giddy when I turn through the pages and have access to these incredible recipes! Much to my delight, the recipes are very easy to understand. I love to cook, but I am definitely a novice! If you are looking to expand your little cooking wings, I seriously suggest buying this book. Please, if you have any respect for yourself, make the roasted pork tacos... life changing. Better yet, invite a bunch of friends over and soak it up when they say you're the best cook ever!

Here are my favorite recipes from A Mouthful of Stars:
Roasted Pork Tacos (obviously)
Key Lime Pie (take her advice and make the special whipped cream with creme fraiche... you might die and go to heaven)
Dark Chocolate Coconut Cream Layer Cake (I hate cake but I made love to this)
Bottoms Up Rice (I make this at least once a week)
Party Pizza (an absolute BLAST)
Vanilla Custard-Filled Baked Apples (hoooolyyy smokes...)
Harissa (I actually eat this by the spoonful)

I'm making the tacos tonight. It's been almost two weeks and my husband has been begging me for them. I am more than happy to oblige.

In all sincerity, A Mouthful of Stars is simply beautiful. I trust that you will find it as beautiful and inspiring as I have! Do yourself a favor and buy this book. You won't regret it!

It's not often you actually enjoy reading a cookbook, but this is a beautiful and enteraining read as well as loaded with recipes that will become your go-to favorites. I think most people can relate to the concept of the elegant narrative, food evokes very strong emotions and memories, we all have our favorites recipes and dishes, and the stories of why they're so special to us. I'm happy to live vicariously through Kim Sunee and her adventures. What's best is to be able to enjoy the treats she experiences along the way.
Everything I've prepared has turned out perfectly, and friends have raved about everything I've prepared. I'm addicted to the chocolate coconut cake, it's become a staple of my community. It's the perfect balance of chocolate and sweet and the coconut custard is really hard to not eat by the spoonfull.. I've gotten so many requests for copies of the book, it's my new go-to gift for all friends/family who love to cook and appreciate a good book.

Format: Hardcover
A Mouthful of Stars is a delightful cookbook that has a sparkling personality--something I am not used to seeing in a cookbook. I thoroughly enjoyed it from its whimsical, attractively designed cover, through the charming anecdotes and introductions, delicious recipes and colorful, eclectic page designs, all the way to the lovely back page that looks like something I would frame.

The great recipes and stories are, of course, the reason I would so highly recommend this cookbook. First, I love literature and am an avid reader (including Sunee's first book, Trail of Crumbs, which was a unique and engaging memoir that I would also recommend). I was drawn to the sophisticated prose in this cookbook--this is the writing of someone who cares about language, who cares about taking the reader through a personal culinary journey. The stories don't overwhelm--they are bright anecdotes that combine well with the recipes. This cookbook is not just about utility--it's meant to be read and enjoyed, and the author makes that very easy.

Second, I am not at all what one might call a practiced cook. In fact, I am something of a reluctant cook. However, I found the recipes enticing and easy to follow. Granted, I won't be making them regularly, but not because they don't sound delicious--just because I am lazy. And Sunee's creativity an authority in the kitchen, and her diverse background in the world of food really shine in the recipes she chooses. The recipes include a few unusual offerings that you wouldn't find in the average cookbook (like kachoombar salad or curry leaf cocktail) and also some variations on old favorites (like key lime pie and pork tacos) that are as alluring as they are distinctive. Her recipe for fresh kimchi is the ONLY kimchi I have ever enjoyed--I usually hate kimchi.

This book is truly a wonderful cookbook with the added extra of stories of Kim's travel adventures. I had the luck of hosting one of Kim's book signings and was fortunate enough to make many recipes from the book. The Korean fried chicken is truly life changing, it will be a staple for all my summer dinner parties, i will be putting the sauce on everything. There are so many cookbooks out there and this one is very east to follow and anyone can make the recipes. Being a chef this is my new favorite book and i will be using a lot this summer.
