As you would have guessed, this is a blog about Korean food. There are many great websites about Korean cuisine out there but what I will try to do is to talk about it from a different point of view. I started being interested in Korean food few years ago, when I visited South Korea for the first time. The flavours, the colours and of course the spiciness of the food were a great discovery, a journey into its taste that is going on since then.
What I want to do is talk about Korean food and culture with eyes of an Italian, who is discovering and who comes from a country where Korean cuisine is almost unknown. In Italy, when you talk about Asian food only two kinds come to mind: Japanese and Chinese. I would like to spread the word about Korean food, but also highlight the unexpected similarities between the Italian and Korea food culture.
