I wasn't introduced to Korean cuisine until recently. A good friend of mine who is all about all things edible introduced me to the cookery much to my delight. From the intense flavors and the entire experience of eating these dishes Korean BBQ truly is an palatable adventure everyone with a pulse should go on. Deuki Hong and Matt Rodbard knows this and together assembled a gem of a book KOREATOWN: A COOKBOOK (Clarkson Potter) it's more then just a mere title on regional cooking - NO! It's an insider look on the subject told in an approachable way that isn't esoteric, obscure or complex. For those like me who by the very definition of the word - a neophyte to the cuisine this is an outstanding introduction. No only do have a plethora of recipes to refer to but a deeper look at the people, the stores, the culture as a whole for us to indulge in with all our senses. What really struck a cord with me was the guest recipes by some of the most celebrated chefs. Literally there was no stone left unturned and this book will be treasured for years to come.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
