Win a Korean cooking startup kit from CJ

By Maangchi

Hello everybody!

Recently CJ Foods contacted me and offered to send me some Korean ingredients as a way of saying “thank you” for spreading Korean culture and cuisine. It was very kind of them to offer, but after talking to them some more, we decided it would be more fun to set up this giveaway for my readers. This is CJ’s way of encouraging you to cook Korean food, because they know that not everyone can find Korean ingredients easily.

So, leave a comment on this post, and you’ll be entered to win a Korean cooking startup kit from CJ.

Please leave only one comment below, and then there will be 20 winners chosen at random by random.org. This contest is open to anyone in the world. Wherever you live, if you win then CJ will deliver this startup kit to your house.

Korean cooking startup kit

The contest will close at midnight (New York time), December 15th and I’ll contact the winners through email. The winners need to answer me in 5 days, and if anyone doesn’t answer in time I’ll have to pick the next winner. So please, when you register for my website to leave a comment, make sure you use a current email! And be sure to check your email around that time!

The other cool thing about this startup kit is that a lot of the products in it are from CJ’s new Bibigo brand, which you’ll soon be able to buy outside of Korean grocery stores in the USA. I asked CJ about this, and they said Bibigo is just a new brand name for their Haechandle brand, which I have been using for decades and you may have seen in my ingredients section.

So, good luck to you! I hope you win!

Update Dec 23, 2011 – The contest is now closed, and the winners have been announced. Thank you for entering!

I’m so happy it tastes just as authentic as the many many I tried in South Korea this Summer! I’m waking up early tomorrow to go to Zürich to spend time in two shops you recommend!

    Hi Maangchi,

    I made baechu doenjang guk today for the second time this week, because it’s a perfect winter soup and I get cravings for it on regular basis :)
    (Replacing anchovies with kombu and dried shiitake mushrooms worked out fine, too)
    Thanks for the recipe!

    I wanna win :)

    Thank you Maangchi <3
    I am a Korean adoptee who is looking for her birth family. I tried my first bite of Korean food at the age of 25, but unfortunately it wasn't very good. Years later, I had my first bite of delicious Korean food at the age of 39. Though I have no memories of Korea or my family, Korean food is like a piece of home for me. Now I am addicted and crave the flavors. Your website has given me the direction and confidence to make Korean food and recapture some of the birth culture that was irrevocably lost to me. Thank you very much.

    I am in love with Korean Culture! I am a Kpop and Kdrama addict and recently started making some easy Korean dishes to try out the cuisine! I love Korean food! Its so spicy and tasty and the taste is never bland! I love well seasoned food and Korean food is a perfect example. I love how you show us how to cook so many different dishes and I love you recipes. It inspired me to cook! I hope I win this because I don’t have many Asian/Korean shops in my town and its very hard to get the spices and pastes used to create all the wonderful dishes. I usually have to buy online but it gets pretty hectic! I would love to get these to try out more dishes and know which products to trust! I love Korean food and I hope I win this so that I can eat all the food delicously!

    Hi Maangchi
    Thank you and CJ Foods a lot for this great opportunity. I’d be really happy if you choose me. I’m Swiss and my husband is Korean and he left his family, friends and a good job in Korea and moved to Switzerland just because of me. I’ve been trying to cook some Korean food with your recipes for him ever since then, to make him miss his home a little bit less. I’d be really glad if I’m chosen to get these ingredients – then I could cook him a surprise Korean Christmas dinner.
    Thank you anyway for your efforts and the great recipes!

    I’ve been your silent reader for years and I’ve tried out many of your dishes to great approval from my friends and family!! I would love to win the hamper pack as it comes complete with all the essentials, gotta love that :) CJ Food rocks.

    Sad to have missed you while you were in Sydney as I was really busy with moving to a new place, if you’re ever in town again, do let us know as my door is always open for you.

    Would it be possible for you to do a tutorial on Al-tang? Its my all time fav and I wish I could cook it myself.

    Warm regards from Sydney, Oz

    Hello Maangchi,

    I enjoy watching Korean series, since then, I was curious to learn Korean food. Sometimes i think that it is similar to japanese food, i saw sort sushi filled with tuna(kimbab). I have never tried kimchi, looks attractieve in red colour, fortunately i do eat spicy food.
    Hey Maangchi, i did try one of your recipe, “Dakkangjung”. I loved the taste and it was not difficult to make, my children and husband found it tasty too. This weekend i’ll have a birthday party of my son, he’ll be 12 years old, and iam planning to serve korean food as a change of regularly indonesian food(iam from indonesia too). Too bad that korean ingredients is never complete to be found at the local asian store in Holland, so i hope i could win this korean cooking start up kit from your website. Thanking you for your usefull website, including your generousity in sharing your recipe and video of making the korean food.
    Greetings from Holland, INDRI

CJ Foods sponsored the recent MAMA 2011 event in SIngapore and they showcase their products in the pre-show fair. I enjoyed the concert live in Singapore…. Music makes ONE!

    just by chance I recently found your website. I have always been interested in Asian cusine, though I mostly cook japanese recipes, because I used to travel there before. now, I want to expand my horizong a bit and try myself at Korean recipes as well. I haven’t accostumed to the taste of kimchi yet and the general spicyness of Korean food, so I hope I can adjust the recipes to my taste (my family isn’t too fond of too spicy food either).
    I guess I will try making some of your recipes soon (except ddokbokki maybe, it sounds really really spicy haha). Thanks for doing the giveaway and wanting to provide people with such starter kits to begin their new ‘career’ as Korean recipe cookers!

Unfortunately grocery stores in Finland have very little Asian products to sell and the only places that sell real Korean ingredients are in the capital city. I’ve tried making some of your recipes (like ddukbokkie) and although they tasted really good, I know they would improve a lot using proper ingredients!

    Even if I don’t win a kit, I’m so glad you make these videos! Without you, I would never have made any other Korean food beside kimchi ramen. So thank you! 감사합니다 !

    What can I say… I don’t cook very often, but when I see you cook I get hungry and go out to get some (korean) dinner! So it works in a way… ;) My initials are CJ, so how cool would that be to have my kitchen cupboard filled with koreanproducts with my own initials on it! :) I always dreamed to have my own productline… :) And after that maybe I start cooking… that would be also good, I think… what do you think?

    Hi Maangchi
    It would be an honer to win the start up kit from CJ. I just recently found your website trying to look for Korean food (Am Latin) And am just tired of the same old food that I eat, that my mom makes. So she told me that if I find the recipe and the ingredients she will make it, and I found your website that tells us how to make it. So then I find that your having a contest and I said to myself what are the odds? I would like for other family’s to try out different foods too because I know many family’s like mine who eat the same thing every day. I would like to share my experience with Korean food with all my friends and family. Your website is amazing!

    Hello Maangchi. I found your website on youtube about 2years ago and started cooking Korean food since then. I’ve tried many recipes that you shared with us, like radish kimchi, cabbage kimchi, kimchi stew, bibimbap, japchae, ddukbokkie and some others. Kimchi stew is one of my favorite! Really happy to know about this competition and I even posted this on my facebook because some people that I know live in a small town, so they can’t find some of the ingredients easily and this startup kit would be great. Wish everyone good luck. :)

    I’m happy I found your website because your recipes are easy to follow, and you always look happy in your videos, especially when you taste the food you cooked. :P Keep up the good work and thanks a lot for your hard work. :)

    Hello Maangchi ! i really love your videos ! watching your videos make me want to try cooking them ! but the problem is that i dont have the ingredients you always use. i just use what i have and it really looks different from your cooking. T.T So it is very meaningful to me if i win the prize since those items are not available here… Goodluck to me! Hwaitin’ ^^)

    Hello Maangchi! I found your site when I searched online for Kimchi recipes. I first tasted Kimchi in the military about 10 years ago and I loved it. Then I tried your Kimchi and Kaktugi recipe and my family and I devoured it within days – it was soooo good. I can’t wait to try your other recipes like Bibimbap and Japchae. You are a true ambassador for the deliciousness that is Korean food! I would love to get started on your other recipes and the CJ Foods startup kit would be just what I need.

    Maangchi ,, You have a very unique way of getting through to people hearts the very first time I saw you where when I was looking for a Kimchi recipe {Making kimchi video} I tried doing it before but the sweet rice flour porridge I learned for the Kimchi paste from you it was a simple step but really Delicious “Thank you” for that cause many recipes didn’t mention it . and I trusted your recipes ever since. I have Tried alot of them latter on but I know It’s missing the original taste for example Instead of Chili paste I had to replace it with sweet Paprika so until now I’m not sure if I had the real taste of the original Korean food that is why I’m exited for your Contest because I’m from Egypt and there is no Korean store around here ,,Sarangheyo Love all the way from Egypt XOXO

    I love watching your YouTube videos and have been following you! I’ve learn so much, and also how similar Korean dishes can be with my own culture. I first got fascinated with Korean Food when I first watch the Historical Korean Drama, Dae Jang Geum! The drama exposed me to so many different traditional Korean dishes and herbs. What fascinated me most about Korean dishes is that it is very natural, and when you eat any kind of dish, it gives you this warm fresh feeling. I am sure in the near future, there will be lots more exposure of Korean food internationally. Korean Drama’s have done lots, but I think you, Maangchi have done a lot. I hope I will be able to win the gift basket! Where I live, there is no Korean market, only Japanese and Chinese and they have very few Korean ingredients. So this “cooking startup” kit would be perfect!!

    I grew up eating Korean food and learned quite a bit from my mother. When I was a teenager, the whole family went to Korea to visit and celebrate my halmonie’s 60th birthday. There were a lot of foods that I haven’t had since and have wanted to learn how to make so I could pass it on to my two daughters and I found quite a few of them here! Thank you for helping me pass on more of my heritage to my children!

    I love korean food. I always wanted to make some but I can’t find hot pepper paste so it’s hard to make korean food without hot pepper paste. I would love to start cooking some korean food. Spicy foods are my favorite so that’s why i want hot pepper paste. My town is pretty small so there are no korean stores. Love your videos, you make me want to go to korea and eat all the food there. =)

    It all started when I get addicted in watching Korean Drama. The Korean food and the way Koreans eat makes my mouth water every time. I would love to just go to a Korean restaurant and dig in. Too bad, here in Indonesia, Korean restaurants are both exclusive and expensive. Can’t often go and try all that’s in the menu. So, I decided to try and learn to cook Korean food myself. I browse Youtube and found Maangchi. The recipes are fantastic (although haven’t really try them all). I love the way she’s hosting her cooking shows. I fell in love to Korean food instantly. I would really like to keep on learning and trying out new recipes, but it’s kind of hard to find some of the ingredients used in Korean cooking here. I sometimes experiments and change unavailable ingredients with what I have at home. Would love to actually cook the recipe using the genuine Korean ingredients. Thank you Maangchi, for sharing so much fantastic recipes with us. You rule!

    My first introduction to fresh Asian food was my coworkers at the military base’s child care center. Many were spouses of the military sothey were from all parts of the world. I was introduced to Korean Bagogi Ribs by a fellow military spouce. I was also introduced to the korean Pancake at a Food demostration at our military commissary. It is a premake package so I love the fact that you make yours from scratch. Very simple. I love Korean food. My sister-in-law is Tai and introduced me to the Asian markets, where I had felt very uncomfortable because I didn’t know what I was doing, before she went with me. The military commissaries carry alot of foreign products but nothing like an asian market. She also taught me how to make spring rolls rather than egg rolls, which always fell apart on me. I have found cooking with the different foods very exciting and adventures.

    Hello!
    Thanks for all your awesome recipes. I haven only learned Japanese recipes up until a few days ago. I have never seen such detailed and extensively thought out korean recipes before. I really love them. I know the difference between home cooked meals and bought meals and hopefully one day, I’ll be able to make Korean food that might rival a halmoni :) Thanks alot :)

    Thank you so much for all your recipes! I love Korean food and there is only a couple of Korean restaurants in my area. They recently opened a GMart, which is great but it is far from where I live. I love watching your videos and learning how to make my own Korean food. I have learned so much from you already! Every recipe always turns out excellent!

    Whenever I think about Korean food, I’m reminded of my boyfriend (or Oppa), who introduced me to Korean cuisine. It’s what he feeds me, and he does a great job at keeping me full and loved…. If only I could do the same in return. So I would love to receive this package and learn to cook up a few of your recipes, which I know he will love!

    I have learned how to cook so many Korean foods through your blog and I can now impress my Korean friends with the knowledge garnered from your site. Unfortunately I go to college (Cornell University) in a place that does not have a large Korean market which makes it hard to find the proper ingredients to make Korean dishes. I hope that I will win, but even if I don’t I still enjoy trying new recipes. Thanks for being an amazing woman and an inspiration! ^-^

    WOW! WOW! WOW! I’m so inspired by your youtube channel! I have always wanted to make, cook, and eat Korean home-made cuisine. One day I decided to search for “kalbi jjim” a korean braised short beef ribs on youtube because I wanted to learn how to make and cook the dish. The first youtube video I watched wasn’t enough for me. All of a sudden I clicked on your youtube channels and I didn’t want to leave all the videos. It almost feel like you were right in my own kitchen cooking with me. Like you mentioned that home-made Korean cuisine is the best because I have accomplished something that I have always dreamed about is making and cooking my own Korean cuisine. I should probably post all of my photos so all the fans can see what I’m making and cooking at home as well. I’m so proud of myself. I love your sense of humor! I hope to meet and cook with you someday. In addition, this is such a great opportunity that you are willing to give away this prize to your fans. It shows that you appreciate our support in your business. Another great step to be successful in your business. Walkinlove!!! :)

    I found your website last month while looking for recipes for butternut squash. I made Hobakjuk and fell in love with it! It was fun making rice balls. I love how all of your recipes are very descriptive. This has become one of my favourite cooking sites to follow (or drool over the pictures) and I’ve slowly started to make more nummy Korean recipes. Thank you sooo much for making a site like this =3

    Love your recipes and videos Maangchi. Have made your Easy Kimchi, and am expecting a couple of stone bowls so I can give Bibimbop a try. I used to love ordering Bibimbop or a Bulgogi Lunchbox at the delightful Korean restaurant in Princeton before I retired from the University. My good friend, Prof. Gwee-sook Kim and I frequently went there, and when she and her hubby went to the Korean Market she always brought me a jar of Kimchi. I missed that here near Pittsburgh where I retired to, so figured I’d better learn how to make Korean dishes myself. And you, Maangchi have been a terrific help in this regard. Keep on cooking and sharing how with us learners!

    I’ve been following you now since about 2006. My husband is Korean and I knew nothing about making Korean food (even though I loved eating it) when I married him while living in Korea. Your site has been heaven-sent for me. I’ve been able to learn so many Korean dishes because you have this site in English and you have videos to accompany your recipes. There are so many nuances to cooking Korean food that you can’t get from just reading a recipe. Since I don’t have a mother-in-law unfortunately to help me out, your videos have helped me tremendously. Thank you very much for thinking of this idea to make a website of your Korean cooking for people like me to use!

    Hello!!
    As a college student during my spare time i love to cook!I love watching your youtube cooking channel and trying out new recipes~! ^^ Even though i am not Korean i love learning about the culture. I started off with food and dramas and then with learning the language. I dont speak it fluently but i am trying my best to get there. My interest to Korean culture has led me to study abroad, sadly i will be going back home really soon and back to my school. I live in LA but because i study in DC its hard to take anything like ingredients back to school with me and you know flying is not cheap. Its also hard to get the ingredients around DC if you dont know how to drive…and sadly i dont know how to drive >.< College life is hard but its always nice to have something delicious to eat during finals. :)

I love to make new Korean recipes all the time but the ingredients are hard to get. The area I live in doesn’t have any Korean ingredients, so I have to travel far to get it. Anyhow, it is a great opportunity and I am very fortunate to have fallen upon your website. I guess I could say that I have learned lots about my half culture through you. Gamsahapmnida!

    I searched and searched… and now I’m here. And I’m very happy.

    Hello from Bulgaria.
    Maybe you saw the post from my friend Sangun ( Presiyan ). We just came back from Korea as the winners of the Delicious Seoul Story competition. The final cooking was in the building of CJ … amazing place. I wanted to hide and never go out hahha.
    I love Korean food. Korean food is one of the most healthy ones in the world. It is always pleasure for mouth and eyes.
    I want to say think you for your amazing videos and your blog. I learned a lot for you and you really helped me get in love with korean food as well. ^^
    It is really sad that we don’t have korean market in Bulgaria. The truth is we have to order everything from outside… but where is love there is a way :). So we always find a way to get ingredients for the korean food. Maybe we have to talk with CJ food to open store here *daydreaming*
    anyway… it think my post is getting too long …
    I wish luck to everyone ^^ Hope the winner will really enjoy all the amazing products ( and maybe I will be one of them :P )
    and … thank you one more time

    Greetings from Bulgaria Maangchi!!!

    Recently I participated in a korean cooking contest called “Delicious Seoul Story” and I became first… with my teammate… it was held in the building of CJ… It was amazing!!! Some of the skills I used there or the knowledge I have is from you and your amazing BLOG!!! I just love it! I love korean cuisine, I am obsessed with it… And during the contest final I could use CJ ingrediants… their quality was #1!!! If I am that lucky to be one of the 20 winners… this will be an amazing gift to continue expand my knowledge about korean cuisine and cook with lots of passion even in the not well known or famous country Bulgaria!

    Best wishes,
    Presiyan.

    After all the American food for Thanksgiving I had serious Korean food cravings – so I made Paechu kimchi, kak dugi, oi kimchi, my own Kkaenip kimchi, and kkaenip changaji. Since my husband was on a business trip I stayed up late (5 AM) making Maangchi’s cucumber pickles, and hot pepper and garlic pickles in soy sauce. Chwi namul was next (I soaked it like crazy – kept changing water and getting sand!) And a huge pot of beef broth so I have soup ready to go in the freezer.

    I used up a lot of my supplies – this basket looks great! Would love to try the Bbq sauces!

    As I was packing my doshirak for work tomorrow, it suddenly occurred to me how second-nature it has become for me to cook Korean food. It’s all thanks to you for demystifying the ingredients! I’ve found that if you have a rice cooker and kimchi, you’ll never go hungry!

    Hi, Maangchi. I’m a 23 year-old Korean American from North Carolina. I used to eat out a lot (a bad habit I developed during my college years) until I got this sudden craving for home-cooked Korean food. Last week was my first time grocery shopping at an Asian supermarket, and I’ve been cooking and eating Korean food ever since! Thanks to you, I have found confidence in cooking and hope to master my native cooking some day.

I love cooking, and what I cook has shifted to be mostly of the Korean variety, and a package like that would be amazing. Si quelqu’un veut l’envoyer chez moi, c’est nickel! Je veux bien moi,merci.

    Nevertheless, congrats to those who do! Happy Cooking!

    Thanks for the contest Maangchi and CJ Foods! =D

    My love of Korean culture came from watching dramas. Not only has watching dramas helped me learn Korean, it also has made me wonder how all those yummy things they cook on TV taste in real life! Maangchi has been an inspiration to me for cooking and I’ve been following her on Youtube for almost a year now. Keep up the good work! Thank you for all of your amazing recipes! :D

    This is random but I LOVE YOU <3 I am super obsessed xD and I just wanted to tell you the most random fact ever: Today I squealed and cried when I saw firefighters walking through my school *it wasn't anything serious I guess they were just checking things* but I started jumping up and down and the tears started falling. So I thank you both for this opportunity cause when I saw the video I started squealing again :3

    Since i’m half Asian, I’ve always been interested in Asian culture and cuisine. I’ve tried lots of different Asian cuisines available here in my country. Unfortunately, there is no restaurant over here that offers Korean food or any store that supplies with the Korean cooking ingredients. Winning this kit and watching your videos will definitely help me to try Korean food.

    Dear Maangchi,

    Thank you for the evening at Susanne van Heijst’s home in October this year.
    Amazing what good Korean Food can do… ! Very proud of being there, and grateful for the opportunity that was given to me.

    I hope that more people can enjoy Korean food the Maangchi way.
    But being Korean does not automatically means that you are able to cook Korean…
    I’ll take my changes and leave a reply.

    Promised, if I win this starter set, I will invite for al meals that I will cook from these ingredients, people that do not (yet) have met the Korean kitchen…! Spread the good news ;-)

    Finding Maangchi’s site means I have already won. What great dishes. We are fortunate to have many great Korean restaurants around the South Puget Sound, but is very hard to find people willing to share how to cook them. Too many seem to assume you will not like the food. I have even had to argue to have some dishes served (such as raw meat / raw egg bulgogi.)

    But winning this prize would be nice, too.

    I just made kimchi from your recipe today. It is the best kimchi I ever eat. I moved from northern VA, where I can easily get korean food at the restaurant 24/7. Now I know where I can get a good recipe from. Thank you so much for sharing!!!!

    Hello! I am Korean and came to the states when i was 3 years old and my korean is not the best but I know my korean food because I was raised with my Grandmothers cooking,
    She was the best and made everything from scratch and done within minutes! Well She is now 98 years old and a couple of years ago she started loosing her sight and taste and is getting worst. I got married 5 years ago and have a 4 year old daughter, The thing is my husband is also korean and was raised in korea till he was a teenager and only perfers korean food and i really wanted to cook for him and my daughter korean food, so i attempted to learn from my grandmother but she says she eyeballs everything and there are no recipe for anything or she says little of this and that .. So i looked for cooking books and everything was in korean (I can’t read korean) Anyway Thank god I found You!! I’m very picky and your recipes are like my grandmothers! Very athentic and I love that you take pride in our culture… especially the old style korean pots and extra dang-jang not scared how people will react to the smell or taste “YOU TEACH IT THE WAY ITS SUPPOSE TO BE,” the way you cook! No fancy gimmics or a show! Thank you for teaching me our culture to my daughter. We now can have that same bond my grandmother and I had.

    I actually found a Korean market in my small little town here that I didn’t know was here. I was elated, and purchased many of the items you’ve recommended in your videos. Thanks for being such inspiration to me, and help me improve on my ethnic cooking I otherwise would of never attempted on my own.
    I’m SO happy to hear you are getting the much due respect from the cooking community. You deserve it. I would love to see FoodNetwork knock on your door. lol

I grew up eating Korean food in the Philippines, especially kimchi, even though my family’s not Korean in any way. When I was looking for recipes to make my own kimchi a couple of years ago, I found your recipes and have been using them ever since! They’ve been such a great help that I’ve shared them to friends who asked for it. Thanks a lot!

I’m really into Korean pop music and dance, so Korean food has always been something I wanted to try. I’m glad to have been able try many thinks. I love your recipes and when I get a chance to go to a Korean market, I pick up a lot of ingredients to make several of your dishes. 감사합니다 ^___^

I want to be the best wife I can for him and it’s hard because we have two different childhoods and views on marriage. He and I both work very hard to try and understand each other. I wanted to make him feel at home by cooking some of his favorite food from Korea. So far I can cook Kimbap (김밥) and Miyeok Guk (미역국). I can also finely read Korean too. Thank you so much for making your youtube channel and blog now I can bring Korea to him when he misses home.

    Hi Maangchi !!! Thanks for all the great videos and dishes I love cooking them and I’m actually going to start my own restaurant soon and hoping I could use some of your recepies in my menu. Even though the nearest market that sells Korean ingredients is 50miles away I go every month and try to make all the dishes that you prepare on your videos! You inspired me and I Love Ya !!!

    Maangchi,

    Thank you so much for sharing with all of us your wonderful recipes! Since I was a child I have been dining regularly at an authentic Korean / Japanese restaurant near my home but have never been able to find the recipes the way they make it there. I have tried so many different ones but was never pleased with them until I tried yours! Your recipes are delicious and I share your site with all my friends! I am hosting a Korean dinner at my house this weekend and am using a bunch of your yummy recipes – I can’t wait! I look forward to trying out more of your wonderful dishes!

    My mom’s best friend when I was young (like 4) was from Korea. I was a picky eater when I was little but I always loved Kim SO MUCH that I would eat whatever she poked down my little mouth – even kimchi! I shop at Super H Mart here in GA and I love it when I pick something up that has been prepared by they ladies there and then I can recreate it from your recipes here. It’s fantastic and a LOT easier than trying just to read and digest with no videos or pictures. Thank you for taking the time to help those of us who love Korean food but have no Korean moms or grandmoms to teach us how to cook properly. Love, love, love your site! I would wish that you would be on food network but I think they would screw the whole vibe of your website up!

    Hi Maangchi

    First of all, I have to say THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

    My husband is Korean but I don’t know anything about cooking Korean food until I found your Website. This really helps me a lot. Sometimes my hubby is amazed and asks me “how do you cook this dish?”. So, truly thank you for making this website that let more people know about Korean food. It’s not just about spicy, really!

    I’ve recently discovered your website looking for a recipe of bibimbap, and yours is delicious! This was the first time I tried cooking something Korean, and it won’t be the last! There are too many recipes I want to try, so if I win this kit i’ll be super happy because it’s difficult to find some ingredients in Spain. Thanks for sharing so many wonderful recipes!

    Hi Maangchi,
    Recently found your blog and youtube channel through a friend. There aren’t any Korean restaurants here in Jamaica or ingredients, so we’re gonna try your Samgyeopsal recipe with the closest things we can find (most likely Chinese ingredients/products). I would be great to win this, so we can have a real taste of Korea!

    Hi Maangchi!

    Since I am currently living in a very rural part of Germany, finding Korean ingredients is definitely a huge challenge. If I am fortunate enough to win the cooking “start-up kit”, I will be able to make many of the dishes I remember from the time I lived in Seoul, and will also be able to share this fabulous cuisine with my many German friends. Thanks so very much for giving us all your wonderful, delicious recipes!!

I was especially happy to find recipes for Hotteok, Tuna Pajeon, and Miyuk Guk since I wasn’t able to find those anywhere else :)

    Hello Maangchi, This website is beyond my favorite website. I’m on it everyday, even at work so I could prepare what to buy after work and go home to cook for my husband. I’m actually a newlywed (really) early in my 20s who JUST started to cook korean food about 2 months ago only now that I have the responsibilities to feed my hubby. You have no idea how much I’ve learned so much from your site:] Living where I live, I have to drive an hour plus just to go to the Korean store (which I cannot drive to without my husband, I’ll get lost in a hearbeat even with a gps haha). Even if I don’t win, I’m just thankful that you have this website that’s super easy for a hangookin 2sae to follow! Mucho Gracias!!

    Hello Maangchi!

    I’ve been following your Youtube channel for a while now. It’s been so very helpful to me! I’m a student at Kyungbook National University in Daegu. I’m from the USA though. I will go home in December, and return to Korea again next August. My mother is unable to fly and visit me, so when I come home I try to share with her the Korean experience as best I can by cooking recipes you have shown here on your website. It is my fourth time in Korea, and every time before I go I try to cook her Korean meals. It’s hard for me to find ingredients though in the Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA where I live. It’s a small country place, so there’s very little there in the way of Asian food. I hope to win the contest and show my mother real Korean ingredients and cook her some of my favorite dishes from Korea! ^_^ Many of those dishes you have featured here and I know she would love to try them. So I hope to win those ingredients for my home in the USA!!

    Thanks for all of your hard work. ^^

I can only imagine what it taste like. I made friends withs some korean exchange students in my university a’nd I’m trying to learn the korean language. I must say that I’m falling in love with Korea <3. I biggest dream is to someday be able to visit the country and taste all the food hahahha. Its almost impossible to comeby the ingredients neccesary to prepare the korean meals where I live [Colima, México] T.T thats why I haven't been able to try the dishes… but my korean friends one day prepared me curry with some local available ingredients and I loved it. It only made me want to try more and more korean foods. I really hope to win the CJ Ingredients package so I can finally start cooking =) …. Keep up the good work Maangchi!! :D ….

    I LOVE your website! I’ve always cooked alongside my mom while she prepared traditional Korean meals but after I moved out and got married I needed guidance for little details that I realized my mom left out when teaching me. You filled in all of the blanks and now my family has contests on cooking Korean food!

    Hi, I’ve been watching your videos everyday but sad to say I never had the chance to try it because of unavailable ingredients. My daughter who is 13 years old is fond of korean foods. We usually dine at eat all u can korean restaurants. She also wants us to visit Korea. Hope I can cook my own korean food with available ingredients.
