Cooking together!


22th March, we had our 4th meeting with Ssong and Inga in Inga&Olha’s house.  this was a my first time visited her house . she cooked borshch, and me and Ssong cooked 불고기 볶음밥 and 된장찌개(doenjang jigae), which  is general sub-meal in Korea. especially doenjang jigae is sold every restaurant in Korean street. doenjang (된장)is one of representative  ‘jjang’ in Korea made by beans.

we put a word jjang(장) which are made by same method such as 고추장, 간장..etc. this is made by fermenting method.(you can easily imagine, if you imagine yogurt)  so in traditional house they have a lot of jangdokdae(장독대), pot making jang for long time. and general food culture is eating rice with 5 or 7 sub-meals. so sometimes sub-meal is a little bit salty, since it is for eating with rice.
