Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Huge Fan! I absolutely love this cookbook. I've been watching Maangchi on youtube for a few years now and she's always been an inspiration to me. She's so loving and positive while cooking. I've only tried a few recipes so far, but everything that I've seen on her channel looked so good that I *had* to buy her book.
