Pickled Radish (치킨무)

Crunchy, crisp radish in sweet, tart pickling juice is very easy to make. The cubes are always served with KFC (Korean Fried Chicken), thus the name Chikin (Chicken) Mu. The slices are often used as wraps and are therefore called Ssam Mu (Ssam = Wrap in Korean).

Ssamjang (쌈장) / Korean Dipping Sauce

This cold sauce is delicious with grilled meat and chicken, or even by itself on top of rice wrapped in lettuce! The name means “wrap paste” since it is often used in bite sized wraps, in particular with grilled pork.

Short-grain Rice

This rice goes well with Asian dishes and its sticky nature makes it perfect for cold rice wraps and sushi. The rice is soaked before cooking and uses less water than other rice cooking methods.

Semla (Swedish Lent Bun)

Swedes will go to almost any lengths to get a hold of this delicacy that used to be available only before Lent and served primarily on Shrove Tuesday. These days bakeries start selling them shortly after Christmas because they are so popular. Sweet bread filled with almond paste and whipped cream – what’s not to like?
