Celeste Heiter's Adventures in Asian Food & Film

My Cookbooks

The Essentials of Asian Cuisine has recipes for quite a few classic Korean dishes such as a hot-pot called Shinsollo, a rice dish called Bi Bim Bap, pan fried vegetables called Jeon, a salad made with mesclun, a spicy kimchi recipe, and a Korean barbeque dish called Dak Kui. The ingredients to prepare them are all remarkably commonplace, and don't seem to need any exotic condiments or spices. But I'm still going to seek out a few other recipes from the Internet before I make my final decision on the menu.
