Kimchi is the national dish of Korea. Just like any family in Korea, my mom and my grandma made lots of kimchi at home when I was growing up. Since I was little, I was put in charge of cleaning vegetables and peeling/grinding garlic to make kimchi. I wasn’t crazy about it back then because it was a tedious task. However, as I have gotten older, it has become such a precious memory. I truly cherish the time I spent with my grandmother in the kitchen.
My mother is a wonderful cook, but my grandma was a true master.
