Cooking Cooking | Let’s make some kimbap!

And the first episode of Cooking Cooking is a fact!

Hi everyone!

Cooking Cooking is a show that gets us to try out recipes or make our own recipes and share it with you. We might fail, or we might succeed, that’s why it is called Cooking Cooking!

So we made kimbap for the first time! It went well, kinda. Let’s blame the minute rice we used instead of short-grain white rice, so you better use that!

We didn’t really have any measurements for everything that we put in our kimbap, so I will just list what we used.

For the herring roll:
-Herring (Haring)
-pickles
-capers
-onion

For the ULTIMATE CHEEMCHI ROLL :
-hotdogs
-cheese
-ham (doesn’t matter what kind and if you use it or not)
-kimchi

and for dessert!
-syrupwaffel (stroopwafel)
-apple
-peanutbutter
-hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles)

And d...

Cooking Cooking [Christmas Edition with Elke]

If you have been in South Korea before, you may have noticed that most cafes offer a treat on the menu that looks a lot like toast. If toast would be served with a lot of whipped cream and fruit that is. They call it honey bread (허니 브레드) and it is super tasty.

Because we can’t stay in Korea all the time and buy this lovely treat, we decided to bring bread – well, -the Korean kind at least – to the Netherlands and share the recipe with you so you can make it at home!

Cooking Cooking: Kimchi soup

Hi everyone!

Here is a blogpost from me, trying to make Kimchi soup for the first time!
I used the recipe from Maangchi that you can find here.

Let’s get started!

The ingredients that Maangchi used were:
– 1 package of tofu (14 ounces:396 gams), cut into bite sized cubes
– 2 cups of chopped kimchi
- ½ pound of pork shoulder (or pork belly), cut into bite sized pieces
– 2 Tablespoons of hot pepper paste
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
– 5 cups of water
– 2 stalks of green onions, chopped

All the ingredients were chopped, so I combined the kimchi, hot pepper paste, kimchi juice, pork, and sugar in a pan.

I added 1 liter of water even though 5 cups of water is more than that (but I had a 1 liter pan) and brought everything to a boil and cooked it for 30 minutes.
After that I added the tofu and lowe...

Cooking Cooking: NA NA NA TAKOYAKI

When I was surfing on the internet I found takoyaki mix powder. I thought OMG NOW I CAN MAKE TRY TO MAKE IT BY MYSELF :D. But the problem was that I didn’t have a pan to make it in. I came with the idea to make it with a popcake maker, and I ordered the mix. The next problem was the pop cake maker because I didn’t have one. But this year ( I ordered the mix last year around December) I got one for my birthday.

Now I want to share my takoyaki experience with you!

If you don’t know what takoyaki is, takoyaki is a popular Japanese dumpling.
It’s made of batter, tenkasu (tempura scraps), beni shoga (red pickled ginger), and aonegi (green onion), topped with okonomiyaki sauce, mayonnaise, aonori (green laver), and katsuobushi (bonito flakes).

I don’t like fish and octopus (but I wan...
