What should I name my new cooking show?

By Maangchi

Hello everybody!

Some of my readers have already contacted me about my global cooking show and invited me to their homes to cook. ooh whoo! Exciting!

I’m still in the planning stage for the show. I’m going to post details soon and let you know how to join it, but one thing I can tell you is that filming will probably start in September or October when everyone has finished their summer vacations.

I will travel around the world and cook with my viewers. I pitched this idea to YouTube in March for the NextUp program, and they chose me to join the program. Being chosen as one of the 25 YouTube Nextup creators and joining the creators’ camp at Google has been the most fascinating experience that has happened to me so far this year!

But this year hasn’t finished yet. I’ll have more fascinating and exciting experiences when I meet as many my readers and my YouTube audience as I can, all around the world!

But please help me choose a name for this show. Here are some ideas so far. Do you have any other creative names?

  • Maangchi’s Global Cooking Show?
  • Planet Maangchi?
  • Maangchi’s Travel Cooking Show?
  • Maangchi, Gabsida! (Gabsida 갑시다 means “let’s go” in English)

In my experience, the more people who are brainstorming ideas, the better.

If you have a good idea for a name, please write it in the comments. If you like one of my ideas above, or one of someone else’s idea, write a comment about it: “I like xxxxxx’s suggestion!”

    Maangchi Takes the World! — a kitchen at a time! :)

    Dear Maangchi, you are cordially invited to cook at my home in Seoul for your show— my kitchen is huge and just waiting for your masterpieces!

    I want to thank you for being such a great teacher! Even though I live in Seoul, and am completely passionate about global cuisines, I was unable to experiment with Korean food – communication has been an obstacle. Thanks to you I can now roam Korean Supermarkets not wondering what people make with those tubs of chili paste!! I tried your Topokki recipe today– my husband asked for thirds! Thanks again!
    Good luck with your show!!!
