The definitive book on Korean cuisine by “YouTube's Korean Julia Child”* and the author of Maangchi’s Real Korean Cooking
*New York Times

Despite the huge popularity of Korean restaurants, there has been no comprehensive book on Korean cooking—until now. Maangchi’s Big Book of Korean Cooking is a wide, deep journey to the heart of a food-obsessed culture.

The book contains the favorite dishes Maangchi has perfected over the years, from Korean barbecue and fried chicken to bulgogi and bibimbap. It explores topics not covered in other Korean cookbooks, from the vegan fare of Buddhist mountain temples to the inventive snacks of street vendors to the healthful, beautiful lunch boxes Korean mothers make for their kids. Maangchi has updated and improved the traditional dishes, without losing their authentic spirit.
Among the features:
• Spectacular party food, from homemade clear rice liquor to sweet, spicy, sour baby back ribs
• Side plates that support and complement every Korean meal
• Soups, hotpots, and stews, from bone broth to tofu stews
• An array of different kimchis
• A detailed photographic chapter on Korean cooking techniques

Hundreds of striking, full-color photos by Maangchi show Korean ingredients so the cook knows exactly what to buy, step-by-step techniques for each recipe, and tempting close-ups of every dish.

This cookbook is everything I could ever want in the kitchen. I love this book because of how beginner/user friendly it is. I cook a lot but never that much Korean food and now, using this book, my friends ask me how I learned how to cook Korean food so authentically. I carefully direct them toward the Holy Grail that is this cookbook. If you still haven't bought this, maybe this will sell you. Imagine Auguste Gusteau's ''Anyone Can Cook!'' cookbook. This is the Korean food version of that. Maybe even better. If you ever plan on making Korean food for yourself, family, or guests, this is most definitely the way to do it. Tons of options and styles of dishes for any occasion. Love it. And remember, Anyone Can Cook!
