Fermentation Frenzy
We all have moments where we crave certain foods that we ate growing up.
As the daughter of a Korean mother and a Polish father, I got to experience elements of these two very different food cultures right inside our home. When my mom cooked for the family, she would make Korean soups, marinated meats, and pickled vegetables that we would eat with rice. When my dad cooked, he would serve kielbasa with sauerkraut and rustic bread. Although at first glance these cuisines seem to have very little in common, there was one unique ingredient that tied them together, and that was fermented cabbage. More
