What should I name my new cooking show?

By Maangchi

Hello everybody!

Some of my readers have already contacted me about my global cooking show and invited me to their homes to cook. ooh whoo! Exciting!

I’m still in the planning stage for the show. I’m going to post details soon and let you know how to join it, but one thing I can tell you is that filming will probably start in September or October when everyone has finished their summer vacations.

I will travel around the world and cook with my viewers. I pitched this idea to YouTube in March for the NextUp program, and they chose me to join the program. Being chosen as one of the 25 YouTube Nextup creators and joining the creators’ camp at Google has been the most fascinating experience that has happened to me so far this year!

But this year hasn’t finished yet. I’ll have more fascinating and exciting experiences when I meet as many my readers and my YouTube audience as I can, all around the world!

But please help me choose a name for this show. Here are some ideas so far. Do you have any other creative names?

  • Maangchi’s Global Cooking Show?
  • Planet Maangchi?
  • Maangchi’s Travel Cooking Show?
  • Maangchi, Gabsida! (Gabsida 갑시다 means “let’s go” in English)

In my experience, the more people who are brainstorming ideas, the better.

If you have a good idea for a name, please write it in the comments. If you like one of my ideas above, or one of someone else’s idea, write a comment about it: “I like xxxxxx’s suggestion!”

    I like “Maangchi Gapsida”! Except if you choose that one, I think you should romanize it as “Gapshida” or “Kapshida” so that it’s easier for people who are not familiar with Korean terms to pronounce :)

    Hey Maangchi and friends,

    What’s cooking? ;)
    Considering the new name, I think it depends on the tone of the show: would you like a general name, or because you’re visiting people’s kitchens all over the world, perhaps a more personal ring might be a good idea.
    So far, I liked “Maangchi, gabsida” best, also because new viewers might not be familiar with Korean (cuisine) at all.

    Maangchi, gabsida: The world is your kitchen
    Maangchi’s Korean cookery club
    Maangchi’s Flying/Frying Kitchen
    Gabsida: Maangchi’s global gang
    Maangchi’s home cooking
    Maangchi goes global

    Anyway, congrats on making it to the YouTube Nextup project.
    The world IS your kitchen!

    Btw, have you seen the movie Wheels on Meals? LOL!

    Hi there Maangchi, i´m really thrill about your cooking show..you rock!!! About the name, i think it should be name just like you “Mangchi”!!!After all, because of you we all have the chance to have a taste of real Korean Cuisine! Hope of being a little bit helpful for you!!
    ps. I also like Kurokokoro´s suggestion “Planet Maangchi” or your suggestion of “Maangchi, Gabsida!”.
