DELIGHTFUL!!! Fun, Informative, and Easy to follow. All the classic recipes (Kimchi; Bibapbim; Bulgogi; Kimchi Stew; Bean Salad), and then MUCH more. All with a playful approach to making yummy food!

Thanks to this visually appealing and informative guide, I can finally cook rice correctly! Very enjoyable and accessible for novice cooks and graphic novel enthusiasts. In addition to the illustrated recipes and ingredients, I enjoyed Ha’s family anecdotes that highlight cooking and eating as a communal activity that brings people together.
