The food I cooked with Joey has really opened my mind to try and experiment with other Korean dishes. I really like to cook for people so I re-created the recipe from the film recently for a group of my friends. Like me they hadn’t really eaten Korean food before and also like me really liked it!
I’ve actually started cooking a lot more Asian food. I like cooking it because ingredients are used in such different ways to most western cooking so it can be a challenge but it also teaches you a lot about how diverse some ingredients are. I think it’s nice to cook my own Asian food as it’s so different to the Asian food lots of takeaways sell. The flavours are far more prominent and the grease is kept to a minimum.
Experimenting with other cuisines is something I think everyone should try – generally I think you find that it isn’t as hard as it seems at first. Even if it is really hard it doesn’t matter if you mess up – just make sure you do that on a practise run, NOT when you’re cooking for friends!.
