My name is Isaac.
I am a Korean living in Lancaster, PA a small city also known as the Amish Country. I have been living here for about 10 years.
This place is surprisingly diversed with the original settlers keeping the old German tradition living harmoniously with a huge population of Hispanics, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Thai with small Korean community and many hipsters in the downtown area ;p. Thus the culinary culture here is absolutely lovely with many options to choose along with the fresh local and organic produces thanks to the rich soil and the honest agricultural habits from the Amish and many local/organic advocates living in the area.
However, it used to be very hard to quench my home sickness and childhood nostalgia. But with the growing popularity of korean food, many Asian grocery stores and event regular supermarkets in this area started to carry lots of Korean ingredients. I often host Korean dinner parties with close friends. And of course, I turn to Maangchi's wonderful video for help.
