Nae Eoni eui Mak Kimchi

Nae Eoni eui Mak Kimchi

This month my eoni (older sister, but not by blood) came to spend time at my house and one of the first things she wanted to do was taste some of the kimchi that I made because she had never had it. I wanted to take it a step further so in addition to letting her taste my kimchi, I took her to the nearest asian market, got nappa cabbage, red pepper flakes, etc, and we spent the hours making her kimchi. I acted as a teacher not the parent who does everything instead of their child, but only stepped in if I felt she really needed it. She did great. She was chopping, soaking, salting the cabbages, chopping vegetables, making kimchi paste, and I was so proud of her. The funniest part was when it came to slicing the daikon julienne-style. I showed her how to do it and she looked at me like she was going to drop dead. (Mind you, prior to this she had sliced leeks, peeled and chopped ginger, chopped onions, etc) That was the greatest expression I have seen in my life. Anyway, with rubber gloves on she applied the paste to the cabbages and made her own mak kimchi. YAH!!!!! Now she can have 10lbs of kimchi to snack on on her way back to Georgia.



The cooks in the kitchen making puri. This hand is the mother of one of the residents. I'm not sure whose.

There's something very reassuring about a bunch of mothers in the kitchen. Whenever my mom and other Korean moms get together, they always end up kicking me out of the kitchen and cooking up a storm. "The kitchen isn't for men," they'd tell me as they forcibly pushed me out, and I would be summoned only if a jar needed opening or some other menial task. Even when my mom is by herself, she still doesn't let me help. So I just watch, and enjoy the finished meal. But my mom knows I like to cook, so she puts on a cooking show for me. "Just a splash of vinegar here! Not too much. And don't forget the sesame seed oil!"

I have to apologize for the graininess. I accidentally shot all these pics with ISO 1600. This was done with my ghetto bounce card attached to my SB600, a Nikon d70, and the kit 18-70mm lens.
