Maangchi in Amsterdam

Posted: October 23rd, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Food, photography | Tags: , , | 4 Comments »

Was it real? Did my Korean chef idol Maangchi really come to Amsterdam and cook amazing Korean food with me? IT WAS GREAT! She’s even more awesome in real life, hilarious and full of energy. I’m so glad I got the opportunity to meet her and host the meet-up. Here’s Maangchi’s take on her trip to Amsterdam. And here are a few of my snapshots from the event. The actual cooking video will come out later after she’s back from her Gapshida travels.

Breaking into dinner two hours before the party started. Oops.

Maangchi taught me all kinds of cooking tricks. Want to chop up garlic fast? Stomp on them with platforms!

Don’t have a knife sharpener? Use a the bottom of a coffee mug!

Making the video!

    I’ve just recently subscribed to Maangchi ( about a week perhaps),and I’m an AVID fan & addicted to her cooking videos.

    I do know about sharpening knife tip ,most of the Filipinos do! I just hope I will see her too in person and learned from her,that would be amazing!

    BTW congrats Sarah you’re one of the LUCKIEST/s subsriber! :-))

    Thank you for your nice write up!
    Once I saw the first photo where you are eating the chicken, I couldn’t help laughing loudly.
    I miss you, our conversation, cooking together, shopping together, and your beautiful boat house.

    During this trip, I have been meeting so many wonderful people. You are one of them!

    After I left Amsterdam, I went to Rotterdam, and went to Copenhagen, Australia, and now I’m here in Wellington New Zealand. I will leave for Rotorua in a few days, then to Asia. This is my “dream come true”. Thank you very much for organizing the meetup again. Keep in touch! : )
