The Original Kim Chi Recipe

I love Korean Kimchi! The most basic type of Kimchi in Korea is called Bae Chu Kimchi and is made of cabbage and anchovies or fish sauce and Korean red chili powder call Gochujang! I learned how to make Bae Chu Kimchi from a room mate I had in college and he and his mother taught me all kinds of Korean food dishes once they saw that I had a MAJOR interest in them. I have been making Kimchi since 1987 and I love it! So learn how to make this Original Bae Chu Kimchi recipe right here! Enjoy!

From the original site:

I love Korean food! I must admit that I never ate Korean food until I went to college in downtown Los Angeles in an area very close to many Asian communities like San Pedro and Monterey Park. The closest Asian district to where I went to school was along Vermont Ave in Los Angeles and here I found China Town, Korea Town, Viet Nam Town, etc. You just name it and there as an Asian “Town” to be found and along with that the foods that came along with them.

I stayed in the dorms at the college that I attended and I had a Korean room mate. His name was Suk Yi, and it was Suk Yi that introduced me to Korean food. I would go to dinner at his family home in San Pedro and eat dishes like Bulgogi, Ox Tail/Bone soup ( Seolleongtang), All kinds of dumplings (Mandu), Korean style sushi (Kimbap) and every manner of food that his family would make. I didn’t find one thing that I didn’t love to eat! One of the foods that Suk Yi introduced me to was Kim Chee/Kim Chi.

I am into making the best possible food, but I don’t make it a habit of making dishes that are excessive in nature or over bloated with ingredients that most people don’t have on hand on a daily basis. That being said I do like to make some classic dishes that are very easy to make and are not excessive by virtue of really expensive ingredients. Food is something that happens everyday and I don’t think it is necessary to go on a “treasure hunt” to find “one of a kind” or pretentious ingredients to make dishes with! You don’t need these types of things to be a fantastic cook. This is why the name of my site is EZ Cooking! So who is Richard Blaine? I am not an industry professional in the sense that I am not a food photographer or writer(only for my blog!) and I am not a food critic for some newspaper where I live. So in truth I will probably not win any awards for my food photos and that’s OK! I am not an award winning chef with a mega blog. I am just a man that has always loved to cook since I was a boy and I felt it was time to share my passion with others in order to help me grow and hopefully help others grow as cooks as well! I am the kind of guy that really likes to get immersed in a subject. I am totally immersed in food. (immersed, not submerged! I know that can bring strange images to one’s mind!) I don’t do bologna sandwiches for lunch and I don’t do mac and cheese for dinner, unless I make it from scratch and add my own flair to it! In my daily life I work as a retail cutlery store manager (the largest cutlery store in the Western United States) I come into contact with some of the finest chefs and cooks from some of the finest establishments my town has to offer and naturally the conversation is always about food. If I have the opportunity to talk about cooking I take it. I am always being shown new things that I previously did not know. I was a bartender for a few years and I like spirits. Irish Whiskey, Bourbon and Scotch. All on the upper end of the scale and my friends think I am a booze snob. I guess I am! I am only willing to put certain things in my body and it has to be quality. My specialty is cutlery as I have been in the cutlery industry for over 30 years now. I am a knife fanatic and means kitchen knives as well. I love a good quality kitchen knife!
