    One thought on “Cook Korean!: A Comic Book with Recipes”

    1. This was a great idea. All cookbooks should be comic books. Now if only this thing would lay flat so I didn't have to keep propping it open! I love Korean BBW.I think you mean BBQ.Yeah, well, that too. I also love knowing what all the cool kids are talking about when they call each other "bae" nowadays.Huh? What do you mean?"Bae" is Korean for Asian pear.The more you know.I dig Kimchi and these kimchi recipes are Asian pears. That didn't sound right. Are we sure kids these days aren't just dumb? [...]

    2. Since I'm a vegetarian, I'm always a little anxious about Korean food, because there's the potential for secret!fish sauce. This book is super-adaptable both for vegetarians and for people who don't have as much time to spend cooking as they'd like.Also, the chapter heads are gorgeous!

    3. Perfect for the visual chef who wants to learn basic Korean cooking The animation is very well done with easy to follow recipes.Sweet backstory to go along with the authors recipes, and her path to getting this book done.I have a lot of experience with cooking Korean foods and still found some new ideas in here. All the recipes are good solid basic Korean cooking that will lead the reader down the path to delicious eating. I couldn't help but like the author her personality comes through in the [...]

    4. I've been looking forward to reading this cookbook since seeing it on NPR's Best of 2016 list. I had to wait a little longer than anticipated because my 10-yr old son opened the package first and started reading it before I had a chance! He was initially attracted to the bright, comic book-style drawings, but then became fully drawn in because the book is so much more than just recipes. Cook Korean! also includes background information about the author, her food journey (her love for cooking st [...]

    5. I checked it out of the library and didn't get a chance to try out any of the recipes, but the art and design are absolutely outstanding! I love the watercolor art at the beginning of each chapter, and the recipes are a perfect blend of great art and informative sidebars that don't distract from the main flow of the recipes. It's really impressive and original to see a recipe book like this, I loved paging through it and hope to check it out again

    6. Now that I’ve prepared a couple of these meals, I can give this book the 5-star rating it deserves. Pros:- The food is great!- There’s a good variety of recipes, and each section of the book contains an introduction to the kind of meal it is about (how it is prepared, when it is eaten, additional cultural context).- These introductions also contain autobiographical comics related to the topic, which I enjoyed.- The artwork in general is very pretty and helps making the instructions very easy [...]

    7. I can't rate this because I didn't really get to try any of the recipes but I loved what I read. My doctor told me to lay off on spicy foods right as I picked this up. But if you're interested in Korean cooking, this is a good one. This is a book that actually contains helpful, instructional graphics. Many graphic cookbooks are simply illustrated. Not so here. (Anyway how does a drawing of what a pineapple looks like help me learn how to cut a pineapple?) I was impressed and hope to return to th [...]

    8. The author’s playful approach made it seem like even an apprehensive cook like me could have success. Although I’m very sensitive to spicy foods, I learned there were a number of recipes where the hot stuff could be added individually at the end. Perfect time to be going through this bookvisiting my Cdn son, S. Korean daughter-in-law and adorable fusion grandbaby in a city where I could get the Korean ingredients. Managed to make three recipes under her guidance and ‘helped’ her make a f [...]

    9. What a fun cookbook! The comic art is great and there is a lot of good cultural information to supplement the recipes. There were a few times where the comic format was difficult to follow, but overall the explanations and illustrations were great.I also liked the balance between trendy recipes and homestyle Korean food.

    10. Loved it! Easy to read and easy to follow with plenty of colorful comic drawings of the preparation process. Definitely one to purchase for my kitchen - I can't wait to try out the 삼계탕 (samgyetang), a ginger chicken soup, this winter!Also, you can never go wrong with a few alcoholic recipes, if you ask me.

    11. Beautifully made, endearing art, excellent and simple recipes. Highly recommended introduction to both graphic novels and Korean food.

    12. Delightful. Bright art and a straightforward voice portray approachable, delicious looking recipes in a very personal way. I loved it!

    13. I just read through this to learn a few things about Korean cuisine, so I'm not sure how the recipes turn out, but I really loved the illustrations!!

    14. I really enjoyed this comic book cookbook! It is very well done and the author explains a lot about Korean life and cooking. The recipes are easy to follow and well illustrated.

    15. This is a really clever idea, and the illustrations are wonderful, but there is not a single recipe in this book that I could cook without totally overhauling my kitchen. I just don't have the storage space for all the Korean cooking staples called for in these recipes. A fun read, all the same.

    16. 4.5 stars for editing- Reading cover to cover I noticed that she probably wrote these recipes in a different order than they are organized in the book, because some later recipes go in-depth on certain instructions and earlier recipes use the same ingredients/techniques/tips but weren't expanded upon. That combined with a spelling error I thought it wasn't quite 5 stars for a cookbook, but couldn't bring myself to offer 4 stars officially because Ha really accomplishes a unique book without sacr [...]

    17. I'd call this an engaging Graphic Novel framework for a beginner-level cookbook. It was colorful and interesting to me, since I've never cooked anything Korean or learned about the basics of the cuisine. The visuals were a little busy around the recipes, however, which I thought made them a little difficult to read. I also would've liked more of the narrative with which it began/ more of the author's story.

    18. This was gifted to me in large part because the graphic novel element seemed intriguing. And it was great! Not just a fun way to connect the culture, but also a useful way to make uniquely Korean ingredients grow to look familiar to Polish-Irish-American me. I am 100% on the graphic cookbook bandwagon that I hope exists!This book is especially useful in light of me being a recovering very picky eater, especially since I still don't like anything fermented (so: no kimchi). Toward the back of the [...]

    19. For most of us, Korean cuisine is limited to Korean BBQ, bibimbap, and, just maybe, a perfunctory knowledge of the various banchan. Robin Ha's comic book cookbook demystifies Korean cuisine, making it far more accessible and less intimidating. Want to know the difference between Malgeunguk, Tojanguk, and Gomguk? Want to know what types of noodles to buy? They're all here, and I've taken this cookbook with me to Ktown grocery stores, and it works out pretty well, although I find myself more wanti [...]

    20. I'm seriously considering buying a copy of this book! It's just the right blend of visual elements to keep my eye moving, and interesting enough in the details to make for a great read—even for those of us who don't have the ingredients on hand and aren't thinking of cooking one of the many great recipes right away. Ha's story is fascinating, and her style incorporates bold linework with fantastic color design. If you love Korean food—or even if you just like nonfiction comics and graphic no [...]

    21. Ha starts us off with a succinct biography about how she taught herself to cook Korean food and a brief overview of the main tenets of Korean cooking before launching into the main primary part of the book, comprised of colorfully illustrated recipes. The writing and cooking descriptions are accessible and easy to follow, leaving the reader confident in their ability to cook Korean. The recipes are also adaptable to the palate of the cook and can be made vegetarian or vegan. Ha’s vibrant art a [...]

    22. Love this book. Every cuisine should have a such a guide. The comic gives information on ingredients, folklore, how and why to eat some Korean dishes. Most recipes take up less than 2 pages (with illustrations, of course). With suggested staples, substitutions and shortcuts offered I don’t feel like I need to make special trips to make most of these recipes. Someone mentioned in a previous review the tight spine binding, I have the same note. I creased the spine for use in the kitchen and will [...]

    23. This is not a graphic novel, it is a graphic book - largely a collection of illustrated recipes. There are a few graphic novel type pages where the author/artist introduces Korean foods or shares her familial history with cooking. These combined with the comic style recipe illustrations are a great mix. But I would have liked graphic novel pages with her stories around the dishes and her (cooking) relationship with her mother as this is more unique, interesting, and a better use of the graphic l [...]

    24. I decided to get this book for my brother and his girlfriend, because they are really interested in korean culture and food. This cook book has very beautifully colored pictures and shows the steps to the recipes very clearly. I myself did not try it, but my brother did say he enjoyed the book very much and has created a few recipes from it.*I received this from Blogging for books for this review*

    25. Borrowed this from the library, will have to get my own personal copy. Flipping through it, I loved both her stories and the recipes. She makes everything, including kimchi, seem so easy! Having spent 18 months in Korea, I do sometimes have longings for Korean food, including bulgogi and bibimbap. I've wondered about those tiny anchovies and who actually eats them. This book illuminates all of it. I can't wait to try some of these recipes. Highly recommended!

    26. This calls for a bunch of specialty ingredients, so it is for someone who is sure they want to cook Korean food, not someone who is hoping to make something close to Korean food with the Chinese, Japanese, etc ingredients already in their pantry.The illustrations are lovely, and the instructions are clear.

    27. the directions feel quite simple and the comic is cute. i love the little personal anecdotes and cultural references. im hoping to *gulp* try a recipe or two. i say this as a person who is deeply intimidated by the kitchen soooo we shall see
