Spring crabs are tasty. It is a blue crab season where I live and I was inspired to make crab stew in Korean style. It is called kkotgetang (꽃게탕). Blue crabs are closest to the Korean crabs. However, Korean crabs are much softer, which means easy to peel and take the meat out.of the shell. That doesn't mean you can't have the delicious stew. If you can find the Korean crabs, that would be the best, but blue crabs will do the job.
As Korea continues to prepare for the upcoming 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics, Koreans are finding themselves debating a curious range of issues dealing with international hospitality. One such topic: Korean food names! While Korean cuisine has seen a recent rise in popularity all around the world, it seems Koreans can't help but wonder how to best present dishes to those who have yet to explore the wonderful world of Korean food.
Earlier this week food lovers from all around the world were outraged by the news that Bangkok was planning to ban street vendors in all 50 districts of Bangkok.

However, only days after the initial announcement, it seems that officials are back peddling fast and causing widespread confusion and anger. From conflicting policy statements, claims of misquoting, and even a festival celebrating the very thing that was banned...buckle up for a confusing ride!

Spring is here and I can feel the warm air outside. When it comes to spring, there is one soup dish that I like to make. It is "Samgyetang (삼계탕)" the Korean chicken and ginseng soup.

So this chicken soup might not be for everyone. But I can tell you that this chicken soup is known for energizing your soul on warm days. Believe it or not, Koreans like to eat this soup for hot summer days. Let's get the recipe, shall we?
