These days I’m often surprised at my readers’ cooking skill when I see some of the photos of Korean dishes they send. I sometimes feel their dishes look much more beautiful than mine! And I see their improved cooking skill.
A couple of days ago, Alex Lee emailed me some photos of Korean dishes that he has been cooking recently. While I was reading his email, I couldn’t help laughing loudly.
I really wanted to share his dakgangjeong story with all of my blog readers. I emailed him and asked permission, he said: “Feel free to share my story with the members : )”
First this is the dakgangjeong that he took to his party:
This is what he sent!
I made this for a dinner party. I had 40 chicken wings – so I doubled everything in your recipe. It took about 4 hours to fry and make everything.. It was the chicken frying that took long.
It was such a hit at the party!
The only change I made in your recipe is to change the peanuts to honey roasted peanuts! This made it even better!
Everyone loved the sudden hit of flavor from the ginger and the nutty taste of the peanuts with the chicken. Thanks so much!
What I found amazingly funny is, a girl at the party looked at the chicken and asked, ” isn’t this Maangchi’s recipe?
