Chapaguri

If you’re one of the millions of people who’ve watched the 92nd Academy Award-winning Best Picture Parasite, then you’ve probably been intrigued by that famous Chapaguri scene (english subtitles used the word “Ramdon” to describe it). If you haven’t already watched it, I highly suggest it to all. The film is still playing in most…

Cold Noodles [냉면]

For most people who haven’t really tried Korean food, you wouldn’t ever think of eating your noodles cold. I mean, why would you, right? … Wrong! Etymology Cold Noodles in Korean is called “Naeng-myun” [냉면]. “Naeng” = Cold ; “Myun” = Noodles If you haven’t already caught it, you’ll notice “myun” in other dishes too like…

A Night in Paris

  A few weeks ago, my friend Chelsea asked if I wanted to attend one of her sister’s cooking classes at Provigo Le Marché. I did not even hesitate for a moment and immediately jumped at the opportunity! Ever since, I had been counting down the days for this specific night. I knew that tonight would…

Pancakes on a Sunday Morning

9AM. I got a call in the morning from my friend inviting me over for pancakes – something he had promised me for my birthday last week and we never came around to making it happen. So I rolled out of bed, got ready, and grabbed my brand spankin’ new Kitchenaid Hand Mixer that I…

Pizza Night

I promised a pizza blog. Here it is. Pizza pictures. And a blog. 🙂 A la casa di Sarah Basically, my friends and I planned a pizza night at Sarah’s house. Her parents were kind to allow a bunch of us to take over their house and fire up the oven! Sarah had picked up…

French Toast Topped with Apple Slices

I lied in my previous post. I DID make something with the apples. And this was probably the ONLY thing I made with them. ** First off, I apologize for lying 😛 Sadly, I had forgotten about this. So, pretend I never said “never” and that I DID say I made something with the apples….

Kimchi [김치]

THE INTRO Just a few days ago, I spoke to my friend about making kimchi again before the summer would end. He immediately asked me if I would show him how to make it some day. So I took that opportunity (and the fact that he had a few days off from work) to find a…

쌈 [ssam]

Just say Sam, but with a stronger emphasis on the S like you’re angry at someone. There you go, you just learned how to say “쌈”. If you’re wondering what that is, it’s basically what you see in the featured photo of this blog. It’s a lettuce wrap with rice, meat, and other Korean side dishes…

Baby Veggies

Over the past weekend, I helped my parents with some gardening. (I’m not that great at it to be honest, but oh well!) ***** Growing up, my parents always owned a flower shop. They had three within the past 20 years.  Ile-Bizard, Ste-Therese, and Laval So my parents know a lot about gardening, plants, trees,…

Spicy Chicken Stew

Last week, I had almost an entire day to myself. I didn’t know whether to go out for a run, give my puppy a bath, sit outside & read, write a blog entry, start planning summer events with friends, or simply cook. I’m pretty sure you can guess what I ended up doing. Yes, I…

‘Banchan’: Korean Side dishes

On beautiful sunny days, I find myself more motivated to cook different and intricate foods.  On Sunday May 3rd, I was home and had two hours to spare. It was one of the sunniest and most beautiful days of the year so far. So I picked up my apron, tied my hair up, and cooked…
