Hi everyone. I've been following Maangchi's videos for the past couple of years, and finally signed in here on the site recently. I'm here because Maangchi is awesome!!! I grew up eating lots of amazing homemade Korean food, but was never really shown how to make it (or maybe I was just too lazy to pay attention!). Anyhow, with Maangchi's help, I have been doing things in the kitchen that I could have only dreamed of before. These days the main Asian chefs of the family (my mom and my auntie) are too busy to teach, so I am extremely grateful to Maangchi for the pleasant (and often amusing) tutorials. I'm so happy to be able to recreate the flavors and textures that I regularly enjoyed (and nearly took for granted) as a child. Lots of xoxo's from Los Angeles, CA!! I heart u, Maangchi! I can cook for real, now! Thank you so much!!
