Publisher Review

Gorgeous recipes! -- Nigel Slater This is the book that demystifies Korean cooking. I am loving it. -- Diana Henry Brilliantly good -- India Knight * SUNDAY TIMES * Enthralling and beautifully written. I read this book from cover to cover in one sitting. It is sensitive, authentic and spell-binding - full of beautiful recipes and fascinating facts in equal measure. I haven't been so excited by a cookbook in a very long time. -- Skye Gyngell It's difficult to condense the scope of Korean cuisine into a single cookbook but Irish chef Jordan Bourke and his Korean fashion designer wife Rejina Pyo have given it a good go. Everything is explained, from the structure of the Korean meal - no courses just a massive, banquet-like feast that you eat with a spoon and chopsticks (Korean ones are flat and metal) - to what store-cupboard essentials to buy. From then on you are free to make any of the delicious recipes on offer, including pork and tofu dumplings, scallops with salted sesame oil, and prawn and sweet potato tempura. Oh, and kimchi. Lots of kimchi. * Waitrose Weekend {Main} *
