Expat Kitchen Visit :: Corned Beef & Cabbage


FROM: United States of America
LIVING: South Korea

We are super excited to have met two lovely foodies a few months ago who live a stones throw away.  Not only do they love cooking, but they aren't afraid to tackle recipes that take a little time including such things as sauerkraut, fancy cupcakes, bread & butter pickles, and hummus for the masses.  We find them an endless source of inspiration.  

Their kitchen is also extraordinary and we would be lying if we didn't say we dream of having something similar someday.  It isn't huge - and it doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles - but it has everything one needs close at hand.  In short, compared with our kitchen it's a magic, gorgeous thing. 


Corned Beef & Cabbage

On this particular visit we were attending a birthday party where they made homemade hearty Corned Beef & Cabbage, something that generally doesn't exist in South Korea.  This dish, which originated during the English Industrial Revolution, takes a lot of planning ahead.  It isn't something many people tackle, so everyone was duly impressed and it vanished fast.

The Corned Beef & Cabbage was accompanied by two Southern favorites, Fried Okra and Potatoes Au Gratin.  For desert they served amazing cupcakes made with coconut sugar (We were so busy eating these, that forgot to photograph the cupcakes).
