i’m just going to do it- i’m going to make kimchi.
the fact that i’ve never made kimchi, may come as a surprise, since i’m korean (and of a certain age- 40).
the thing is, you get your kimchi from your mom or your local korean market.
koreans hold making kimchi as something sacred-not to be taken lightly; and also seen as labor intensive, so they are usually made in large batches.
however, i am inspired by the many non-koreans who fearlessly attempt to make kimchi.
my mother never taught me how to cook, let alone how to make kimchi. she never let me step foot into the kitchen.
aside from growing up eating kimchi, i don’t have any experience, any special recipes or any special ingredients.
i’m truly daunted by what i am about to do. it’s going to require all of my very limited culinary acumen.
