  3. Jess & Tyler - stuffed peppers and kimchi will be on the next poll! Thanks! I think kimchi could definitely get it's own full episode, not just mini.

    To everyone else - suggestions welcome.

  4. Haha... doesn't kimchi require up to a week of fermentation?

    Make some miso soup and vegetarian sushi rolls! ;)

  5. Ryan - Uh...perhaps. I glanced at a recipe that required a couple days of fermentation. It could be tricky. Miso and sushi rolls sound lovely!

    Jess - ROASTED, definitely roasted. I think what contributed to that (in addition to the magic of roasting anything) was the freshness of the asparagus. But the classic steam...simple and satisfying.

  7. you should try to find the falafel episode of bobby flay throwdown online somewhere for some good tips on texture and how to make the balls of falafel. balls of falafel!

  8. i believe that kimchi chige (kimchi soup/stew) is a much more interesting option for the show. yes, kimchi does take 3 days to ferment. you could do a mini-episode of making the kimchi and integrate it into a full episode for the soup/stew.

    come on, people. imagine the beauty of this rare dish in America.

    i haven't asked much in my life, have I?

  9. Chris - sure wish I had done that a few days earlier. My falafel balling experience was...well, that's just say it left something to be desired.

    You'll see.
