I have also been learning how to cook Korean food. I figured the best way to know what I will want to eat when we arrive is to try cooking it myself. It will also be a great way to connect with Jacob and help him hold onto his culture. The good news for us is that we have a World Market! Such an amazing place. I was able to find Korean cookies, seasoning packets for different Korean dishes, and other amazing things. So far my cooking adventures have went well. I am taking it slow, but it is so much fun! So far I have cooked hoddeok (sweet pancakes), bulgogi (Korean barbque), and salgussam (walnuts wrapped in dried apricots). Everything I have cooked we have loved (so a success)!!!
Salgussam (walnuts wrapped in dried apricots) - an appetizer or snack (very yummy)!!!
The cookies I found at the World Market (so good - chocolate in the middle)!!!
My take on bulgogi (Korean beef barbque) with rice - cooked the meat with a seasoning packet for Korean barbque and decided it smelled so good to cook my veggies in that seasoning too (so so good)!!!
