Korean Food - Sous Chef

Exploring Korean Food with Sous Chef

I was recently offered the opportunity to review a Korean Food Pack put together by Sous Chef, an online cooking shop with a wide variety of food and cookery equipment for food lovers. It is a place for cooks and chefs at any level to buy ingredients, equipment, tableware and gifts inspired by leading restaurants from around the world and international food. In my Korean food pack I received white sesame seeds, sesame oil, vermicilli noodles, Kimchi and a beautiful crafted plate.

One of the first things I couldn’t wait to sample was the kimchi which I opened pretty much straight away and ate some as a snack – which I know isn’t customary but I could not resist, I absolutely love it. Kimchi is a spicy and pungent condiment made from fermented cabbage and radises and seasoned with garlic, ginger and chillies. It is Korea’s national dish and can be made at home but obviously receiving it ready made saves a lot of time. It is sharp and is most commonly eating alongside main meals but I just enjoy the sharp, rich taste so much that I eat it as a snack like a salad.

I found a really easy to follow recipe of Japchae (stir-fry Korean glass noodles) and made this dish for the first time using the vermicelli noodles in the food pack sent. For my first attempt they came out really well and tasted absolutely delicious – perfectly chewy without being mushy or flavourless. What I particularly liked was the fact that because I used these authentic ingredients the dish itself really did taste special, like something I would expect to be served in a take-away or restaurant.
