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.
