Description

Magazine F: KIMCHI is Issue #12

Kimchi is a millennia-old, preserved food of Korea, and kimjang, the making and sharing of kimchi to be eaten over winter months, was designated as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2013. Napa cabbages and Korean radishes are salted, coated in red pepper powder, garlic, and other savory ingredients, and then left to ferment. As each family developed their own recipe, kimchi became more diverse with each passing generation. Kimchidok crocks kept in the ground have been replaced by refrigerators in the home specifically for kimchi storage—evincing the everlasting symbolism of kimchi on the Korean table. Today, fermentation is a major trend in gastronomy culture, and this naturally fermented, probiotic-rich food is revered worldwide.

KIMCHI Quotes

Napa cabbage from alpine regions, quality chili powder, perfectly fermented jeotgal salted seafood, and good salt all make kimjang, or collective kimchi making, successful. The state of mind is also very important. If you make kimchi when you’re stressed or annoyed, the kimjang of that year can easily fail. Even if the napa cabbage heads are salted and washed exactly per the recipe, if kimchi is made by someone distracted, the haste becomes apparent into the taste.
Jongguk Lee, Chef of Jongguk Lee 104
Kimchi is a unique food that originated in Korea, but many countries have embraced it. Once accepted, kimchi is localized and forms a new culinary genre. I don’t think kimchi should be always made in the standard Korean style. By using unusual vegetables, and taking advantage of fermentation, which magnifies the effects of good substances in ingredients, we can create kimchi with a novel flavor as well as health benefits.
