Hi everyone! I made a new discussion forum for my website here: https://www.maangchi.com/talk/

When I first started making Korean cooking videos on YouTube, I was really interested in helping people learn how to cook Korean food. But YouTube comments are so short, so I made a blog to keep in contact with viewers. Then I added sections to the blog to help people even more, by taking pictures of ingredients and kitchenware. All the time I’m answering emails and comments to encourage people who want to learn about cooking Korean food.

But sometimes I’m so busy, or sometimes someone asks me a question about buying ingredients in their home country, and I don’t know much about that. Recently someone asked a question on my blog, and another blog reader answered them, but the first commenter was anonymous and there was no way to contact them with the answer.

Sometimes I’m emailed the same questions by different people.

So I decided to make this forum so you readers and viewers can talk to each other and maybe you can help each other and make some new friends. This is a place where you can discuss whatever you want between each other. Sometimes I will join you, too. I love interacting with readers but it will be more useful if you post your questions here instead of emailing them to me, so that everyone can read and help. Anyone who knows the answer, please feel free to answer.

I hope you like it! Have fun!

    Please be patient until I can post it. : ) I have so many different kinds of dishes requested by others that I have not posted.

  8. Hi Maangchi! I am desperately looking for a recipe to make Gae Jang. My hubbie, who is Korean, recommended to do an online post on your website since he knows tha I am a big fan of your recipes. I got one recipe from my mother in law. However it is not the same as the one I had in Korea. CHUSEYO, could you please post a Gae Jang recipe for me???

    Gamsahamnida!! Lan-Anh

    Oh, you bought some Korean ingredients from German online shop?

    Chogochujang is mixture of vinegar,hot pepper paste and other ingredients. I am showing how to make choguchujang in my most recent video, “Hwedupbap” (raw fish bibimbap)

    I don’t use chogochujang for regular bibimbap. I use it when I eat raw fish or hwedupbap.

  10. Dear Maangchi, this is a very good idea. I fell in love with Korean food the first time I tried it in Italy, where I live.
    So far I had the chance to try bulgogi and bibimbap and I look forward to make my own bibimbap.
    I bought from a german online shop some ingredients which I don’t find in Italy like kosari but instead of the hot pepper paste (which they didn’t have at the time) I tried the vinegared one “chogochujang”, which is very different to me.
    Do you ever use chogochujang?
    Thank you for all the marvellous recipes you show us.
    Lots of love from Italy
