Maangchi, an Internet sensation, has won the admiration of home cooks and chefs alike with her trademark combination of good technique and good cheer while demonstrating Korea's vast and delicious cuisine. Maangchi's Real Korean Cooking shows how to make all of the country's best dishes, from simple one-ingredient dishes (Spicy Napa Cabbage) to those popularized by Korean restaurants (L.A. Galbi, Bulgogi, Korean Fried Chicken) to hearty one-pot dishes like Bibimbap.

  5. This isn't your typical "Asian travel" cookbook. Koreatown is a fiery, funky, flavor-packed ode to the grit and charm of Korean cooking in America. Deuki Hong and Matt Rodbard show us why Koreatowns across the country are synonymous with mealtime feasts and late-night chef hangouts through stories, interviews, and over 100 delicious, super-approachable recipes.

    It's spicy, fermented, sweet and savory, and full of umami: Korean cuisine is poised to take off in the United States, but cookbooks have so far focused on taking readers on an idealized Korean journey. Koreatown, on the other hand, is all about what's real and happening right now: the foods of Korean American communities across the country, from Los Angeles to New York City, Atlanta to Chicago. They travel with Rodbard and Hong through these communities, sharing stories and recipes for everything from beloved Korean barbecue favorites like bulgogi and kalbi to lesser-known but deeply satisfying stews, soups, noodles, salads, drinks, and the many kimchis of the Korean American table.
