Rave Reviews

“Illustrator Robin Ha’s cheeky cartoon characters (a cape-clad superhero Spam can, a group of signing bean sprouts) guide the reader through the basics of Korean food in comic-book-style panels and drawings. […] Her cheerful main character, Dengki, coaches readers through each step. Before you know it, you’re cooking along with her.”
Food & Wine magazine

“This highly recommended collection is a solid introduction for readers who feel daunted by Korean cooking and ingredients.”
