Seoul Food & a Week of Eating In

Gyeongbokgung in Seoul, South Korea

While Bi Bim Bap and Kalbi are the staples of Korean food here in the US, they’re just a sliver of all the tasty foods that are available in the second largest metropolitan area in the world. This week on TabletTalk, I write about some of my favourite eats in Seoul, but be forewarned, the very fresh seafood towards the end is not for the feint of heart.

How to remove an Avocado pit

Over at ReadyMade, I show you how to peel and pit an avocado, and for those that need a little weekend inspiration, I’ve started a new weekly feature called Four Course Friday’s where I compile a four course menu from around the web.

On YouTube (and in real life), I’ve started The Week of Eating In Challenge with an update of what I made on day 1 and day 2. It may sound simple enough, but having turned down a handful of invites, and a couple food events, I’m starting to wonder what havoc this will wreak on my social life.

    Ouch! Timing is everything, huh? ;) I hope your abstinence pays off… Off to read your columns!

    Hi Marc! I have a feeling you won't have any trouble with this week's eating in challenge. ;)

    And now I am sooo hungry for Korean food! I sometimes want to go to Korea just to eat the food. I have memories of eating tteobokki on the streets after school. :)

    Hello! I've been following No Recipes for a few weeks and just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy it. I've recently moved to Japan (to Matsumoto, of all places), so your site has been a great resource as I get accustomed to cooking with unfamiliar Japanese ingredients.

    PS: After reading your great write-up on Seoul and Korean food, I posted a link to it in my blog. Korea's never been high on my list of places to go, but it sounds much more promising now!

    Cheers!

Welcome!

I'm Marc, and I want to teach you some basic techniques and give you the confidence and inspiration so that you can cook without recipes too!
