Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese – it’s safe to say that we’ve been eagerly eating our way through the Asian continent for decades. Now Korean cuisine is capturing the hearts and minds of foodies all over the UK, with its perfect balance of flavours and fiery, earthy qualities.
Rather than having one dish per person, most Korean meals take up an entire table, with countless colourful side dishes, pickles, soups and noodles piled high. One thing’s for sure – there will be a plentiful supply of kimchi, a dollop or two of gochujang, plenty of crisp julienned vegetables and some thinly sliced beef. Take a look at our essential Korean store cupboard ingredients guide to make sure you’re fully stocked and cook your way through these incredible recipes that will show you what Korean cuisine is all about.
