Hepinstall's book is both more ambitious than Jenny Kwak's Dok Suni (LJ 11/15/98) and more
wide-ranging than Deborah Coultrip-Davis and Young Sook Ramsey's vegetarian Flavors of

The Kimchee Cookbook: Fiery Flavors and Cultural History of Korea's National
by Kim Man-Jo Lee Kyou-Tae, Lee O-Young
Korea's favorite food, kim chee is a side dish made by pickling vegetables such as
radishes, cabbage, and cucumbers in salt, mixing in seasonings, and allowing the mixture
to mature. But kim chee means much more to a Korean. Expressing the very essence of Korean
cosmology, it follows a basic code of five colors (green, red, white, black, and yellow)
and flavors (salty, spicy, sour, sweet, and bitter) which in turn symbolizes universal
directions, actions, and seasonal changes. Rooted in the theory of Yin and Yang, this
fermented food is known as an appetite stimulant, as well as for its high vitamin C
content and beneficial lactic acid microorganisms. The Kim Chee Cookingbook catalogs 90
recipes for all occasions, from traditional whole cabbage kim chee to gourmet stuffed crab
shell kim chee. It also places kim chee in its historical, cultural, and scientific
contexts. Illustrated with over 110 sumptuous photographs, it is a fascinating and
comprehensive look into Korean cuisine and culture.
Korean food is flavorful, from soothingly mild to
piquantly pleasing, and a delight to the eye as well. Now you can enjoy traditional Korean
favorites that have been handed down through generations of talented family cooks and
adapted to be low-fat and vegetarian.

Ramsay include far more recipes than Kwak's 75, with more information about the cuisine...
