I am an Indian (South East Asia) living in Chicago suburbs. I got hooked on Korean drama recently. From watching the dramas I realized that Korea has a very well developed culinary tradition. I visited a korean restaurant and loved the food. Since then I have been looking for good korean recipes and cookbooks. I found some good korean groceries(Hmart, Assi ) near my work where I can shop for korean ingredients. Now I am ready to venture into Korean cusine. I was lucky enough to find reference to this site at amazon.Thanks for creating this great site !!!!
