Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong

If you are not familiar with Korean television personalities, hearing the name Kang Ho Dong will probably spring a question mark in your head. As a pro-wrestler turned comedian and television host, his tumultuous laugh not only caught the attention of Korean viewers, but also the attention of many Americans. But it is not through his comical whips and laughter that caught the attention of Americans, but through food. Kang Ho Dong is not only a television personality, but also is a restaurateur. With several restaurants in South Korea, the opening of yet another restaurant, but this time in California, only seemed plausible. Located in the heart of Koreatown, Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong is not only the place to get the best Korean food in town, but it also the toughest place to get into. From the moment it opens at 11:30am for lunch, there is already a line of people waiting to get a table. But once inside, it is like entering a restaurant in Seoul. With stainless steal chopsticks and a generous amount …

A Soufflé to Die For

There is nothing so beautiful as egg yolks, flour, butter, and chocolate mixed together. Separate ingredients coming together creates some of the most mouth watering desserts imaginable. Although most complain that it takes less than two minutes to eat a piece of dessert and more than twenty minutes to make, it is not about how long it takes to make, but the entire process as a whole is what truly makes baking worth doing, and a soufflé is exactly just that. When we think of a soufflé we automatically think of the word ‘difficult’. Even by just looking at it with its puffed up top towering high over the rim of its ramekin, a difficult process begins to unfold within our minds wondering how on earth can anyone make something as beautiful as that? As most of us are what Julia Child called “the servantless Americans”, cooking French food sounds absolutely remarkable and not as challenging as we always thought.  To make the soufflé, or chocolate soufflé in this case, all that it requires is some …

The Strain of Breakfast

Typically speaking, I have never been the one who enjoys a cool, bright filled morning. The strain of having to get out of those warm and comfortable bed sheets to enter a chilled room is not the most exciting part of my day. With groggy eyes, a zombie-like walk, and the repeating word of “coffee”, mornings seem more like a chore than a pleasure. After all, who likes waking up before the birds and the bee’s? With a quick cup of coffee in hand, I immediately get ready to head out the door and begin a new day. Nothing in my day includes the most vital part of the morning routine that all nutritionists say is important to keep healthy, and that is breakfast. But why is it essential to have a piece of toast with jam, yogurt with granola, or even a banana? According to the specialists, a breakfast meal gives many benefits that we have heard of time and time again: improved performance, weight control, strength and endurance. But these benefits are only …
