Book Description from the Front Cover Flap

"Move over, Thai and Japanese." Korean food is poised to become America's next favorite Asian cuisine. It is rapidly gaining in popularity in the West for its robust and intensely flavorful dishes like Korean barbecue (known as "bulgogi"), kimchi (pickled spicy vegetables) and bibimbap, a delicious meal-in-one rice bowl.

The Korean Table shows American cooks how to create the exciting and authentic flavors of Korean cuisine at home using fresh and commonly available ingredients from their neighborhood grocery store or farmer's market. With more than 100 foolproof recipes, authors Taekyung Chung and Debra Samuels, a Korean and American culinary team, guide home cooks through the process of making Korean meals without fuss and without multiple trips to specialty markets, or worse, expensive on-line shopping.

Along with showing you how to create a complete Korean meal from start to finish-including recipes such as Scallion Pancakes, Korean Dumplings (Mandu), Tofu and Clam Hot Pot, Korean Hot Wings, Glass Noodles with Beef and Vegetables (Japchae) and Barbecued Pork Ribs-The Korean Table will give you ideas about how to add the flavors of Korea to your table in numerous quick-and-easy ways-via condiments, side dishes, salad dressings, sauces and so on.

With this cookbook in your kitchen, your table will become a spread of delicious Korean dishes for all to share and enjoy.
