Quick and Easy Korean

Korean cooking is the overlooked gem of Asian food. Not as well-known as trendy Japanese or as widespread as Chinese or Thai, it gets lost amid the panoply of Eastern flavours that are clamouring for attention. With more and more Korean restaurants gaining popularity in large cities, it's becoming known for its complex yet fresh flavours which aren't bogged down in heavy sauces.

In Quick and Easy Korean (published by Chronicle Books), Cecilia Hae-Jin Lee introduces 70 simple everyday dishes, ranging from comforting soups, rice and noodle bowls, grilled meats and colourful side dishes. Here are three simple dishes you can pull together with a few ingredients from the Asian section of you supermarket, along with a fun and easy take on classic kimchi.
