Homemade Banchan Banquet

To celebrate Christmas/New Year with the family, I made a banchan banquet for the first time ever. Because I’m not Korean, this was very challenging but a lot of fun. I have Maangchi’s trusty cookbook, blog and YouTube videos with me every step of the way. It feels like Maangchi is with me. All dishes are homemade from scratch.
