This time our Korean Food Fan is Krynauw Otto from South Africa!
He’s a 13 year old student and loves Asian culture and cuisine. He found my website when he did an internet search for a kimchi recipe. Now he makes kimchi, chapssalddeok (Korean style mochi), kimchi stew, kimchi pancakes, and fish cake soup (eomukguk)! He says he’s still a beginner but I think his cooking and presentation skills are superb.
Nice meeting you Krynauw!
This photo was taken at a zoo in South Africa. Isn’t the tiger cub cute!?

About 1 or 2 times a week.
