I’ve been to Asia many times, and have even filmed a whole season of my TV show eating my way around Bangkok, Tokyo and Hong Kong. Yet, there are still so many places I haven’t been and that I’d like to visit. South Korea is really high up on that list!
Unfortunately travelling isn’t possible this year, so I’m really lucky that I have a good friend here in Luxembourg who often cooks Korean food for my. Jennifer even makes her own kimchi, and it’s that good that she started her own company a few years ago – The Happy Guts Company – selling her fantastic kimchi, kombucha and kefir (all made organically here in Luxembourg).
I love eating Jennifer’s kimchi straight from the jar, but it’s also fantastic to use in these crispy kimchi pancakes. Think of them as a Korean version of our Luxembourgish Gromperekichelcher!
This recipe was created as part of my “Staycation” show, inspiring people with recipes from my travels that they can recreate at home – to get us all to travel in our minds despite being stuck at home this summer…
