Levys Zangronis

This week our Korean food fan is Levys  Zangronis from Florida. When I saw the photo of his homemade kongnamul-muchim (soy bean sprout side dish), I was very impressed! You can see the photo below: the bean sprouts were cooked perfectly and seasoned nicely so that the finished dish looks very appetizing without being overwhelmed by the seasonings.

He gave me a nice compliment on my cookbook, and especially the photos, which made me happy. He said: “I just received MY BOOK (in capital letters… yes) is the most wonderful, well done and useful book I have, with breathtaking photos. Now I can finally take the book with me directly to the market to buy the ingredients or ask for them, thanks to the illustrations. Thanks to you Maangchi! I am very proud to have it and recommend it to everyone. thanks for such a magnificent job. Congratulations.!!!!! Keep up the good work. !!!!!”

I can picture him taking my book to a Korean grocery store to find all the ingredients he needs. The book is kind of heavy though!

Thank you, Levys! Good luck with your Korean cooking!
