One of the things Simon and I really miss about living in Canada is homemade cooking. We love to cook and bake, but it is challenging to do so in Korea as the grocery stores are stocked with unfamiliar ingredients, and also because eating out is so darn cheap. I (Martina) finally snapped and decided to learn some Korean cooking so that I could make my own authentic Korean food, and I went with an easy meal called dok bok ki (duck-boh-key). After a couple bad meals, I finally got it right, so we decided to do what any normal couple would do…make our own cooking show to share the news! For those of you living/moving in/to Bucheon or Korea, weâ€™re hoping you can follow along and make some dok bok ki for yourself. If you’re not in Korea and crave some Korean food of your own making, this is the video for you! If any of you want the recipe written out, feel free to contact us. We would recommend a specific recipe we got from a book if that were the case. Instead, I just Googled many different versions of the recipe, and fiddled around with it until I finally it right.
I warn in advance, this video is pretty long at about 8 minutes, and due to a single cameraman and no script, some of the talking sucks. I apologize in advance. Enjoy!
