  1. Hello All,

    Greetings from Atlanta, Georgia. I just wanted to say that I found you just by googling "Korean receipe". I have a Korean mom and an African American Father. I grew up with my mother so I ate Korean food everyday!!! It's still my favorite till this day. Maanchi, your videos are great!!! My best friend and I are going to get together and try some of the dishes. Luckily I know how to cook a few dishes.

    Best Wishes and Aloha

  2. Blackthai,
    Hey!!!!!! I was adopted from Korea and my birth mother is Korean and my father African-American. I don't meet "our" mix much. People always try and guess "what I am". I've gotten Polynesian, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Malaysian- you name it! I was adopted at age 5 so I remember the food like you wouldn't believe. I love it! I am going to try and make Korean food more often. Like having Kim chi on hand- I have huge cravings sometimes. Maangchi is definitely a foodie, and generous of spirit also. Something I haven't felt too much of with the Korean community. Tell me about your favorite dishes!

    Best wishes

  3. oh, you make me feel emotional now! You left Korea at the age of 5, but still remember some Korean food! Amazing! I love you!!!

  4. Oh, Thankyou Maangchi!!!
    When I watch your videos I have a sort of homesick feeling. But I always anticipate what you will put in the recipe next because I know all the Korean flavors! Thankyou for your enthusiasm- maybe someday we will meet!
    We came in 1974, my sister and I and we are hoping to reconnect with our korean mother. I know it is very difficult and bad for a korean woman to be single and have mixed race babies but we want her to see through pictures how healthy we are and to thank her for giving us a wonderful life with our american family. Korean was our first language of course but we quickly forgot it. It would be fun to study it again! I have wonderful memories of living in a house with paper windows, and a yellow warm floor and good soup and fish and rice. I think we must have lived with our grandmother- I'm not sure. Also, there was a tree with prickly fruit that we would knock down with sticks and open with our feet( shoes on of course!) I think these were chestnuts- do you think so? Oh my, so many memories. I came upon your website by accident and look how many memories I have now. Food is so much part of a culture isn't it? Thankyou Maangchi!
