Fed up with celebrity chefs drizzling sauces over undercooked pieces of meat? I am!

I regularly dine out and am happy to share my restaurant experiences, and musings on food with you.

Kimchi Taste Test

I have just conducted a kimchi taste test of three UK produced kimchis.

Without a doubt my vote goes to Eaten Alive, well fermented and with a spicy kick!

Chuseok and Spam

Chuseok, or Harvest Festival, has begun in Korea; and in the South a traditional and popular gift is Spam.

Seemingly South Koreans love Spam.

For why?
"“Because Spam is both salty and high in fat, it compliments the spicy, tangy elements of Korean food very well – particularly kimchi, as the flavours balance each other out.
Introduced in the South in the 1950's by the US army, to feed the starving war torn population, it has never looked back.

A very happy Chuseok to my Korean friends!
