I'm American and my friend is Korean.
I am currently staying at his home visiting Korea. So I thought it would be nice for me to cook something for him since he opened up his home to me. But he has a very closed mind when it comes to food. I tried making a couple recipes from home, but he wouldn't even taste them just because it's not Korean food!! :( He's never experienced another kind of food and I guess he's just not ready to try.
But lately my stomach has been having trouble with Korean food because it's spicy or has fermented ingredients... I was ok at first but 2 months in I barely want to eat any food at all! I like spicy and flavorful food, but the spicy level in Korea is very different from the spicy level at home.
Are there some Korean foods I can make at home that are delicious to Koreans but still gentle to my American stomach? Also know I am not a skilled cook so it should be a little easy ㅠㅠ
I can make dakbaeksuk... but it's too bland for me... so I end up not wanting to eat it, too..
