Presenting the famous kimchi á lá Mee Rim

After lots of blog posts with food for the mind - here comes one with food for the stomach ^-^ another post about kimchi.

Making the Korean national dish of kimchi and on top of that, making it at Mee Rim's place is a delightful experience for the senses.

As we chit-chat and prepare the raddish, the cabbage, the garlic and ginger etc. aromas fill the room with a gush of freshly salted and washed cabbages, which blend with the pungent aroma of garlic and ginger - and when chilli is added to the mix and the shredded radishes are tossed and turned with this paste, magic takes place and turns the ingredients into a delicious and perfect red filling to put into the cabbages.

mmmm... kimchi's the perfect sidedish in winter time, because of the chilli and ginger that warms you up - and it's perfect in the summer time, because it provides a delicious spark of freshness amongst the humidity of Seoul - whenever is kimchi not a perfect sidedish :) even had it with the traditional Danish (veggie) Christmas dinner, where it proved as a fantastic company to the red cabbage and the sugar brown potatoes.

And here is.. the secret of Mee Rim's kimchi - for your eyes only :) (and for those who read hangul only ^_^)

Leave a comment and a mailadress and I'll translate!
