Korean on the Rise

hannaone Jan 14, 2009 09:34 AM

I'm kind of excited - My first newspaper interview.
And I'm in good company - guess who the "passionate gourmande ophthalmologist" is.

      "if you ever open another korean restaurant, i'm heading up to montreal to try it, hannaone."

      Goodness! I'd be really happy if Hannaone would move to Montreal and open a resto!

      So great that that put your website in the article. I'm sure people will enjoy reading it, and trying the recipes :)

      Now Cimui, if Mum comes back to Montreal soon and cooks up a storm, you should still consider a visit...

        boy, all of you were very nice to let that one slide. hannaone's nowhere near montreal, i see. wishful thinking on my part, eh?

        but moh, i will shamelessly come eat your mum's food any day -- so long as you two promise to reciprocate and visit me in comparatively tropical nyc!

      Congratulations to the both of you! Wow, I kind of feel like a semi-celebrity by association! : )

        Kudos to you, Hannaone, although I have no idea of the identify of the "passionate gourmande opthamlogist." Is that someone who posts on CH??? In any case, I really appreciate the time and effort you take to post on CH and your willingness to share all your great Korean recipes. I've made your kimchee pancake recipe countless times. My dad deemed it even better than my mom's kimchee pancakes and my dad doesn't often compliment other people's cooking!!!

          Thanks. Glad your father likes them.
          LoL, Moh is the passionate gourmande and I suspect is the one who pointed the reporter to me.

          Great article. hannaone, I don't know if you've mentioned it before but I've always assumed your were native Korean. With your extensive knowledge of the food I thought for sure you had experience with it your whole life. I'm very impressed by your passion and curiosity to learn some much about the food of another culture.

            Congrats! I loved this article and hopefully the popularity of Korean food passes down to the good ol' US.

            However I live in a huge Korean area (MD/DC) so I have no problem finding "decent" korean food. (:

              I hope this is true - I would love to see a greater appreciation of Korean food. In Edmonton you would find Koreans running and working in Japanese restaurants, such a waste.

                Congratulations hannaone! I've been predicting (hoping?) for several years that Korean would be the new "Thai" wave in the US. There are no true Korean restaurants in Maine and I hope this soon changes. My son son send ingredients from Seoul, so I cook it myself; even planted Napa cabbage this year to make kim chee.
                We had a grandson, Taebaek, born in Seoul on Jan 2. We will spend a month this June in Korea. I'm really looking forward to the chowhounding!
