Learning Korean: Recipes for home cooking 

Peter Serpico 


Seoul-born, Maryland-raised chef Peter Serpico offers readers a seat at his family table in his debut cookbook, Learning Korean. Serpico's meals are personal, drawing from decades of professional cooking experience-and his own heritage-to explore the extraordinary world of traditional Korean home cooking. From an instant kimchi and simple banchan to rice, noodles, grilled meats and soul-stirring stews, these 100 recipes use ingredients found in well-stocked supermarkets for outstanding, healthy results. He features ideas for creative weekday meals, including an onion pancake paired with a dipping sauce and pork dumplings and acorn squash soup served with homemade, crispy rice cakes. For barbecue fans, a Korea-fied roast chicken sits alongside a sweet-and-spicy grilled cauliflower. Cooks of all skill levels will find inspiration and delight in this beautifully photographed, unique take on the Korean culinary canon, from an award-winning chef, father and talented teacher.
