There is so much more to Korean food than kimchi and tabletop barbecuing, and Caroline Hwang is here to show us what.

Korean Food Made Easy devotes sections to both of these delicious areas of Korean cuisine, but there is also a lot more.

Banchan (small dishes), soups and stews, a delectable range of main courses, noodles and rice, Dosirak (lunchboxes) and desserts all feature heavily, and Hwang includes glossaries of Korean ingredients, and a nifty menu planner for anyone wanting to immerse themselves in the cuisine deeply.

What surprises the most (apart from the many varieties of kimchi, a brave new world for those of us who are only familiar with the bog standard cabbage and chilli version) is the striking flavours of real Korean food.

Korean potato salad with apples, sweetcorn and kewpie mayonnaise, steamed egg pots with fish sauce and sesame seeds, cauliflower kimchi, hangover stew made from ox bones, a unique take on steak tartare, braised monkfish, bibimap (rice with mixed vegies), egg bread and brown sugar pancakes all sound so good that they are on my ‘to make’ list as of right now. Delicious.
