Great Primers on Korean Food - Blogs

These blogs really help you understand the fundamentals of standard Korean recipes:

1. Trifood is a great guide to understanding the basic ingredients and preparation of some common Korean dishes as well as how they are served.

2. Home Cooking Diary is a quick and simple guide to a wide range of standard Korean recipes. Written by Peter Park, a Korean American attorney, it provides a very easy-to-follow guide to preparing many common Korean foods.

3. Anna's Korean Kitchen Diary is written by Anna, a Korean American woman living in Baltimore, Maryland who sources recipes from her mother, Young, and sometimes, her aunts. Her user-friendly blog is a greater primer on the in's and out's of Korean cooking, telling you how to prepare and handle ingredients commonly used in Korean recipes.

4. Tasty Meals at Home is the collaboration of a Korean/Taiwanese couple. Although not strictly a Korean food blog, it does provide a good number of Korean recipes that are easy to make.

Great Blogs to Teach You About the Culture/Background of Korean Food

Sure, it's great to have a variety of informational resources about Korean food. But reading about it from a blog really gives you a personal take, a personal connection to the food itself. That is why I have decided to include a list of English blogs that provide an excellent introduction to the culture/background of Korean food. Here they are:

1. One Fork, One Spoon focuses on the author's food travels in Mexico, Spain, and elsewhere, with a large focus on Korea and Korean food. Written by Grace, a Korean American living in Brooklyn, New York, there is an extensive coverage of the history and culture of Korean food. She writes about the origins and cultural background of many dishes with a sharp attention to detail and most importantly, covers the how's and why's of the tradition of Korean food.

2. Korean Food is a great blog written by a group of friends, two Korean and one Thai, who wanted to share the history and culture of Korean food. Like One Fork, One Spoon, it also provides a lot of coverage on the origins and traditions of Korean food with great attention to the ingredients used in Korean cooking.
