Maangchi Meetup

By Maangchi


I met my blog readers on Saturday afternoon, July 26. All eight members got together and had a great picnic. I was surprised that they recognized my face quickly. “Hey, Maangchi!” that’s the first sentence when they saw me. I took off my sunglasses to show my face so that they could find me easily. I was standing at our appointment place next to the fountain in Bryant Park.

I’m posting some photos here with their permission. It was such a pleasant time

During the meeting, our conversation kept going on. It never stopped! About what did we talk? Of course, we talked about Korean food again even though we were eating delicious Korean food at the moment. We had su jung gwa, gimbap, mandu, kimchi, and rice cake! Someone brought a bottle of wine and we could say “Cheers”!

    Ellen,
    Sure, mae woon tang is already included in the list of my upcoming videos. I may not use daegu, but you can use the same recipe for daegu.(cod) Thank you very much and I hope to see you soon.

    I found your website while searching for Korean food recipes to make for my husband (we are newlywed!)
    My mom is an awesome, “natural” cook…but I found it intimidating to try to make Korean food. Mostly I make Pajun, soupy noodle with myulchi-stock, etc.

    Thank you for your time and thought in preparing these videos and also for being so excited and supportive of your viewers!

    I hope to see you at your next gathering in NY! =)

    ps- Can I request a video/recipe for daegu meh-oon-tang?? Thanku!

    Anonymous,
    You must be talking about the fish corvina which is kind of croaker fish, “Jo kie” in Korean.
    As you said, it’s very simple recipe. Sprinkle some salt on the fresh fish and dry the liquid from the fish with paper towel. Then cook it on heated pan with vegetable oil until both sides turn into golden brown. That’s it!

    I may show you how to do it in one of my upcoming cooking videos. Thanks,

    Hi Maangchi,

    I go to my favourite Korean restaraunt at least once a month. my favourite is the friled Yellow Carvina. It does not look so hard to make, so I tried to make it at home. But it does not look so good. The taste is pretty good. Wonder if you have a recipe for that:)

    Thanks

    Yes, it’s called “siru dduk” red bean layered sweet rice cake. Many people (mostly korean friends) love my siru dduk. : ) I will post the recipe video later. Thank you!
