    I’m thrilled to see this recipe here! Our daugh­ter-in-law is from Seoul, where our fam­i­ly went to cel­e­brate a tra­di­tion­al Kore­an wed­ding not long ago. Ever since, I find myself crav­ing kim­chi, buy­ing it, and con­sum­ing it. Now I have a can-do recipe for mak­ing it myself. I notice there is no fish sauce in this recipe, but that’s okay.

    How fit­ting to have this recipe post­ed at the same time Lin­da Sue Park’s new pic­ture book is fea­tured on Bookol­o­gy! Smart!

      We hope you enjoy it, Mary. We looked for a recipe with­out fish sauce … hope­ful­ly it still has an authen­tic fla­vor.
