My name is Sue and I am your host.
My Korean Kitchen is a personal food blog that talks all about my love and passion for Korean food and Korean fusion food. It includes step by step recipes with great photos, discussions, food culture, and restaurant experiences etc.
My husband suggested that I start some kind of blog in back in March 2006. I thought there aren’t many Korean food recipe blogs or websites that show step by step instructions with photos back then.
I also thought that if I can describe well and hopefully my husband learns how to cook, then I won’t always have to cook. (Nah~! It didn’t work. He still doesn’t know how to cook delicious food yet, though he seems to understand more about what I am feeding him. Because he is the proofreader of this blog.)
Since I started this blog, my husband and I both have benefited from it. I am really enjoying cooking and taking pictures of it. It is so fun, it feels like I am an editor of a food magazine. We also eat a bigger variety of food all the time which I never bothered to cook before. So it is really great to have this blog, simply because we enjoy our life more and appreciate it.
Originally I aimed at foreigners living in Korea to give them some tips on living and cooking there, because my husband often said he had some difficulty finding out about Korean food before he married me. However over time I learnt that most of my blog readers are actually from outside of Korea, who want to learn Korean cooking and its culture. So my focus has shifted a bit to give more relevant information to those people and share their pain when it’s difficult to find the source of cooking ingredients.
I hope My Korean Kitchen becomes a good guide and a place that brings good discussion and useful information to Korean food lovers.
Press Mentions of My Korean Kitchen:
I am a Korean native who is currently living in Queensland (the sunshine state), Brisbane, Australia (since March 2007). I spent most of my childhood to young adult life in Korea until I met my Aussie husband. I have had a great exposure to delicious Korean food all the time as I was growing up, because my parents ran a restaurant for more than 15 years+. Although I didn’t learn cooking from my mum, I tried to observe her as much as I can in her busy restaurant kitchen.
I was off from blogging in the last 5 years pretty much since I immigrated to Australia and during that time I finished my master degree in accounting, worked in a corporate finance team and I recently became a CPA. So, I want to make the clear point that I am not a professional cook however I love enjoying eating delicious food and sharing my experience with my family and friends.
