Overview

In Dok Suni, Jenny Kwak offers a loving and delicious introduction to the most exciting cuisine in the food world today— Korean cooking. Whether you are one of the millions of Americans who are already devotees of the spicy, healthful, home-style world of Korean food or you're trying it for the first time, Dok Suni will delight with flavorful, authentic, easy-to-prepare specialties and a taste of the family traditions that come to life in every dish.

Ranging from hearty and spicy soups (said to heal whatever ails you), barbecued beef favorites, and rice and noodle dishes to seafood and chicken specialties and the irresistible appetizers and side dishes that make every Korean meal complete, the recipes include: sautéed Korean vermicelli with vegetables

• ginseng chicken in broth

• spicy stewed crab

• beef barbecue with sesame-salt dipping sauce

• Korean dumplings

• seafood pancake

• stuffed zucchini

• hearty kimchi soup

• among many others.

More than a recipe collection, Dok Suni (the name means "strong woman") opens the door to an entire cuisine. Sprinkled with handed-down fables, secrets for easy preparation, and loving salutes to an immigrant mom who worked hard to make it in America and shows her love through her out-of-this-world kitchen creations, the book is a truly passionate celebration of Korean cooking and eating.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Every dish at Dok Suni's tastes as if Jenny's mother made it. It's not just home-cooked— it's mother-cooked."—Quentin Tarantino

"Thanks to Jenny Kwak, I'll be able to create fabulous, aromatic, and piquant Korean dishes in my own kitchen. Her recipes are sensational, but I also love her stories. Leafing through the pages of Dok Suni, I felt as though I were in the kitchen with Jenny and her mother, listening, learning, sampling."—Lisa See, author of On Gold Mountain: The One-Hundred-Year Odyssey of a Chinese-American Family and Flower Net

"I understand that Dok Suni means 'strong woman,' and that's got to be true, because it takes a strong woman to make ribs this good."—Alex Rockwell, filmmaker

M. Anderson
....[E]ssentially an homage to [Kwak's] mother who...is a gifted cook and a talented restaurateur who now runs a Korean restaurant....The book is long on sentiment and short on specifics....As a family memoir, this book is a charming expression of a daughter's love for her mother....But as a cookbook, it could use a bit more work.
