The best way to regularly enjoy Korean food is to prepare it yourself. And Jenny Kwak’s Dok Suni: Recipes from My Mother’s Korean Kitchen cookbook can help you do just that.
Starting out with Mom’s Shopping List, Dok Suni helps you become acquainted with everything you’ll need to make the recipes. Then you can delve into side dishes, rice and noodle dishes, soups, recipes for dishes with meat, chicken and fish, party foods, and treats. One recipe I’ll have try soon is the one for cinnamon and ginger punch. Our favorite Korean restaurant serves this after the meal and our little guy loves it.
In addition to good recipes, Dok Suni includes family stories about Kwak’s childhood and Korean folktales that have been handed down from generation to generation.
