Korean Cooking: How to make Homemade Banana Makeolli

Not actually Korean food, but goes perfect with the Korean Pancake recipe I shared a couple of weeks ago. Koreans are particularly fond of staying in on rainy days and enjoying these two dishes together. I am a massive fan of makeolli and intend to drink as much as possible before I leave Korea!

Food and Dranks – Endless Sides

CAM00029

So yeah guys, it’s a Sunday mornin’, rain is fallin’, and I am in an absolute daze. The past two days have been a marathon. From 6am on Friday morning to 4am today I had three hours of sleep. Whaaaaaat. And let me tell you, it was the most absurd 48 hours of my life yet.

Let’s rewind a bit to see what went down: I got a text from one of my good friends from EPIK on an unassuming Friday night. I had finished teaching classes for the day, and she invited me to a late dinner with a Korean “Wine Club.” I looked from the text on my phone to my pajamas…looked back at the text and told myself “what the hell, let’s do the damn thing tonight.”


MMPK Makgeolli Week!!!

 

What is MMPK Makgeolli Week?

You’ve heard of Restaurant Week, you’ve heard of Food Week, well now Makgeolli Mamas & Papas Korea proudly presents the very first MMPK Makgeolli Week!


Chuseok Gifts in Korea – Spam, Coffee, and More!

Chuseok, Korea’s Fall Harvest holiday, is a great time to be in Korea. We have a longer holiday (3-5 days) in between summer and winter vacation, the weather is finally cooling off and the leaves are starting to change. On top of that, some of my favorite fruits come into season (asian pears) and are often eaten in the teacher’s room, and lots of gifts are given!

Hagwon teachers are usually given more gifts during any holiday than public school teachers, just because at hagwons foreigners are the only teachers! Anyways, there are some pretty unique gifts given during Chuseok, and you’ll know it when you see the huge displays of canned meat, tuna, dried vegetables, bathroom toiletries, and assorted rice cake treats in all of the big stores.

This year Evan really hit the jackpot! Check out Evan’s Chuseok haul, and behold all of the SPAM! :D


Chuseok Jeon Making Class Success!

Mamas & Papas came together to learn how to make a Chuseok staple: Jeon! We had expert instruction from the head chef at Muldwinda, who patiently coached us into making the perfect Jeon. We then successfully demolished all our jeon with plenty of delicious makgeolli. We are as ever grateful for the awesome hospitality we always receive when at Muldwinda. Keep your eyes open for more events like this in the future :)


Get Ready, Get Set…Chuseok

by Ben Haynes

What a wonderful time of year we’ve happened upon! The harvest season, celebrated in as many ways as there are people and religions on this blessed planet. Yes, it’s all about getting together and enjoying the company of family and and gorging on the fruits of a well worked field or cubicle. Maybe packing on a few kilos for the winter months for good measure.

To observe this time of bounty, Americans roast up the largest, antibiotic-filled, corn fed turkey we can find at the grocery and then stuff it with some….. stuffing.

EZ Shop Korea – Costco Delivery Haul!

We’ve mentioned EZ shop before in our “10 websites that will make life easier in Korea” post, and I’ve even made a video about it on my personal channel. But after seeing Qiranger’s Costco haul video, I decided to finally make an EZ shop haul video for our main channel! We’ve been getting Costco groceries delivered to our door for about 2 years now, and it’s such a fantastic service!


Food and Dranks – The Appetizer Round

Hey everyone, went out successfully last Friday, and effectively lost my voice! T__T Stayed in recouping from it for teaching on Monday, and I did a decent job of it by drinking honey citron tea.

Friday night was a long night, and I’m sure if you stay in Daegu you’ll develop a feel for all the hotspots. I will occasionally write about the food and dranks (alcoholic things) here, but for now let’s start with my first trip out: “the appetizers.”


Korean Cooking: How to make Korean Pancakes, Jeon 전


Haemul Pajeon
There have been lots of articles on blogs recently about one of my favourite Korean dishes, the pancake! They have a flair for pancakes here and add lots of fresh vegetables, meat and seafood to them. My favourite is the kimchijeon, which (as you can probably guess from the name) has kimchi added into the mixture. Koreans usually serve it on a big plate and share it around the table, people help themselves whenever they want, dip it in the mix of vinegar and soy and enjoy.
