This Korean cookbook makes it easy to replicate the authentic tastes of Korean food — even for beginners!

Korean food is poised to become America's next favorite Asian cuisine to adopt. It is rapidly gaining popularity in the US for its robust and intensely flavorful dishes like Korean barbecue (known as bulgogi), kimchi (pickled spicy cabbage), and bibimbap rice bowls.

The Korean Table shows American cooks how to replicate the exciting and authentic flavors of Korean cuisine at home using fresh ingredients available from their neighborhood grocery store or farmer's market. In this Korean cooking book, Chung and Samuels, a Korean and American author team, guide home cooks through the process of making Korean meals without fuss and multiple trips to specialty markets, or worse, expensive online shopping.

Along with showing cooks how to create a complete Korean meal from start to finish—including recipes such as:

The Korean Table will also show cooks how to add the flavors of Korea to their homestyle cuisine in numerous quick and easy ways—via condiments, side dishes, salad dressings, sauces and more. With this cookbook, filled with over 100 recipes, everyone's kitchen can incorporate a spread of delicious Korean meals for all to share and enjoy.
