망치님! 한국의 구독자입니다.. 영어 공부하려고 비디오도 엄청 보고 이렇게 이메일로 블로그까지 구독하게 됐어요. 항상 영상과 글 잘 읽고 있습니다. 한국에 사는 저보다 더더욱 한식을 자주 드시는 것 같아요 ㅋㅋㅋ 더위 조심하시고 언제나 행복하세용 ㅎㅎ

Hi Maangchi,

I was looking for a recipe for pickled eggplant that was shared by a Korean neighbor. When I finally found one on the internet there you were with a video. It has be a marvelous find for me as I like to cook and eat Asian foods.

A short story about this neighbor. When she would cook traditional Korean foods, that her children refused to eat, there would rather have pizza, she would knock on my door and tell me to send my son over as she was cooking octopus and he loved her cooking. So off he would go to enjoy a meal.

That was many years ago, but I did love her other dishes and I too enjoyed them. Unfortunately we moved away to Arkansas then I moved to Texas. I do still miss her cooking. And all our children are grown with children and grandchildren of their own.

I now have both your cook books and have made many of the recipes. :)

Enjoy the day!

I learned about your website when you gave an interview to Serious Eats. Since following your website, I have learned to make kalbi and kimchee, and many other dishes. I am happy to see Korean food rise in popularity, as the staples for Korean cooking are becoming more widely available, but still no H Mart in site. Your recipes are always easy to execute and so flavorful. I love fresh kimchee most of all!

I learned about your website in 2020. I needed a recipe for Mook. It is one of my childhood favorites. One thing is confusing is my mother always told me it was made out of chestnut powder. Well the next recipe was eggplant namul. I miss your videos. I once saw a YouTube video on a Korean aristocrat about a thousand years ago who created a cookbook. He had put in it a recipe of yogurt that his house made. Do you know anything about this?
