What makes Korean food so tasty? The secret is in the “jangs,” sauces that have been a staple of Korean cuisine for thousands of years. Jang is prepared by fermenting soybeans into soy sauce (ganjang), soybean paste (doenjang) and chilli paste (gochujang). This seasoning not only delivers a rich palette of flavors, but it also offers significant health benefits.
Ae Jin Huys already introduced us to kimchi, Korean fermented vegetables. In this book, she shows how to use various jangs to season your meals. Try replacing the butter on your potatoes with jang, for instance, and discover a rich bouquet of aromas. With 70 accessible recipes – using ingredients easily available from your local store – these jangs make your daily fare healthier and tastier in no time at all. The best of both worlds!
