Maangchi’s Gapshida video is finally up! Enjoy :).
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!
Most of my friends and family are aware of my love of Korean food and my latest obsession with learning how to cook from my fav chef Maangchi. I discovered her cooking videos over a year ago when I got sick of not having access to any affordable Korean restaurants in the city and needed to feed my kimichi addiction. Since then, I’ve gotten a whole group of Amsterdammers hooked on Korean cuisine by throwing dinner parties with Maangchi recipes. Next month, my ultimate gastranomic dream is turning into reality because Maangchi is flying to Amsterdam and cooking on my houseboat! She has started a food show project where she is traveling around the world to cook and I’m lucky enough to be a part of her show. I’m so excited! Stay tuned, a cooking show with me and Maangchi out soon!
