Great thread. That recipe looks like a good starting point.
My best friend/roommate in college was Korean. Over a few years he introduced me to the full gamut of Korean food. Kimchi was a staple in our apartment. His parents made it old school and rotated buried pots in their yard.
His mom made some incredible kimchi and pork dumplings and a kimchi/squid/rice dish that was kind of like fried rice but spicy and more delicious. We had kimchi - ramen - egg soup quite a bit in our college years, too.
I've attempted to make it over the years, but nothing's ever come close to the 'real thing'. I've decided to simply buy prepared kimchi since nobody in my house will so much as look at it let alone try some.
Is this your homework, Larry?
