Korean bakery recipes

Bread, pastries, and cakes are not traditional Korean foods, they are a relatively new addition to the Korean diet. Korean breads and pastries are sold in Korean bakeries and are French-inspired, but generally softer, fluffier, and springier than the European versions. Texture is very important and they often feature Korean flavors like red bean. Cafe culture is a big part of their appeal, as Koreans gather in bakeries at all hours to meet friends, talk, have coffee and enjoy some pastries together.
