Cookbook Library

As I write about cookbooks, I’ll post ones I’ve used here, along with my thoughts.

Korean Food Made Simple is a companion book to Judy Joo’s show of the same title on Cooking Channel. You can find the recipes she cooks on the show in the cookbook. Her recipe layout and instructions are very easy to follow, and she has a photo glossary of most of the Korean ingredients she uses in her cooking. One thing to note, is her recipes tend to use too much sugar for my tastes. I suggest halving her sugar amounts, and gradually adding  to your own taste. She uses her knowledge as a professional chef to sometimes adjust how food is cooked. There are a mix of traditional and contemporary recipes in the cookbook.
