How lucky I am! I have met many wonderful foodie friends through my cooking classes. Hee-chan is one of them. She was born and raised in South Korea and is now living in Maui. I had the opportunity to learn her family cooking from her Omuni (mother) KyungSook, sister MoonHee who lives in Maui, another sister JungKyung in South Korea, and her brother MinHo who lives in Seattle. They are the ones who opened the door to the world of Korean soul food to me, which I could never learn nor was introduced to in my many years of visiting South Korea.

Omuni KyungSook, born in North Korea in 1942, escaped with her whole family to South Korea when she was nine years old. Her cooking is based on the traditional Northern style, which boasts sophistication in flavor and taste. Wow! Traditional Northern cuisine before Korea’s separation offered richer and more sophisticated flavors?! To be honest, I was not convinced until she let me taste her kimchi. It was so delicately complex and elegant.

Hee-chan’s sister MoonHee is a very creative cook. She introduced me to “Baby Bok Choi Kimchi”. This unconventional kimchi, being so delicious, I can safely say it is my favorite kimchi in the world. Its fruity spicy sauce matches perfectly with baby bok choi or many other vegetables.

Her other sister JungKyung’s Na Mul (cooked vegetables) is without doubt a family treasure. It is beyond whatever is available commercially or in the restaurants. I wish she lived in Maui so I could learn more from her.

Brother MinHo's hobby is cooking. Among his numerous recipes, he shared with me his Man Du with tofu, vegetables, and pork mix. It is amazingly delicious!

Hee-chan taught me Jap Chae (sweet potato noodles with vegetables). Her knowledge of Korean cooking is huge, and yet, she is endlessly passionate in learning new flavors. She is my precious source of information for this new course. I am ever so grateful for her generosity in sharing her precious family recipes with me. Cam Sa hamada (thank you in Korean)!

And I am very happy that she is passing her family flavors to her daughter Chaelin. I am sure she will someday pass those wonderful recipes to her children. Forever live Haham's Family Flavor!

Besides this Korean Fusion cooking course, other cuisine classes are also available to you. Looking forward to cooking with you!
