Recreate your favorite Korean recipes and discover new dishes with this easy-to-follow cookbook!

Flavorful and satisfying, Korean cuisine is a tantalizing balance of tastes and textures—fiery peppers are a counterpoint to mild rice, fragrant sesame oil adds a hint of sweetness to meat and vegetables, and pickled kimchi adds zest with its tanginess and crunch. And, best of all, Korean food emphasizes vegetables and grains, making it as healthy as it is delicious.

This Korean cookbook features more than 60 recipes, created by the celebrated chefs at the Shilla Hotel, Seoul. Discover popular favorites—beef bulgogi, Bibimbap (steamed rice with vegetables and red chili bean paste) and stuffed cucumber kimchi—as well as other delicious and easy-to-prepare dishes such as Guljeolpan (nine-sectioned royal platter), Shinseolo and Korean Festive Cakes.

Stunning photography, detailed information on ingredients, and insights into the culture of this fascinating country make The Food of Korea the perfect companion for your adventure into Korean cuisine.

  • Classic Chinese Cabbage Kimchi
  • Traditional Rice Flour Pancake Rolls
  • Mushroom Casserole
  • Stewed Beef Ribs
