The Spicy Hot Foods of Korean Cuisine – A Most Unlikely Place For Traditional Hot and Spicy Cooking

The Spicy Hot Foods of Korean Cuisine – A Most Unlikely Place For Traditional Hot and Spicy Cooking

Generally, many places that you will find hot and spicy food around the world have a couple of things in common. These locations are usually tropical and / or hot places, geographically, or they were part of a major spice route centuries ago. Korea is neither tropical or hot, having a rather cold climate overall. Nor has it ever been on a major spice route.

Without any of these traits, Korea is said to have the highest per capita consumption of chiles in the world. So how did this Korean love of hot and spicy food come about? The chile made it's first appearance in the region in China in the 12th century, where it is believed to have been introduced by the Portuguese. They introduced the Chinese to the hot pepper, and from there some seeds made it from China into Korean hands, and on into Korea. There is also a belief that the chile was brought over by the Dutch to Korea much later, around the 17th century.

Even before the arrival of the chile, Korea was already preparing food that was spicy. The pungency of Korean food came from the use of mustard plant and radishes in cooking, which, with the use of chiles, still exists today.

The most popular of chiles in Korea is a variety known as koch's . This is a long, finger-like chile, with a smooth skin that tapers at the end. It is most similar to the Anaheim or New Mexico chile common in the Western world.

This chile is used to make a hot, red chile powder that is sold in three grades: course grade, flaked, and fine. The course grade is often used to make kimchi , a type of fermented cabbage very popular in Korea. The flaked version of the chile is most often used as a zesty garnish. The fine grade is most often used to make a red hot chile paste known as koch'ujang , which is used in almost every prepared Korean dish. It is a complex paste that is traditionally made in the home, but can be readily found in Korean and Asian markets. Besides the fine red hot chile powder, the paste contains barley malt powder, water, sweet rice flour, hot red chile powder, fermented soybean paste, soy sauce, and salt.

Asian Culture 101: Tips for Your Next Business Trip to Asia

Asian Culture 101: Tips for Your Next Business Trip to Asia

When speaking about cultures or business etiquette, Asian countries are often grouped together. However, it is not necessarily true that cultures or ethnicities in the same area of ​​the world share the same traditions or values. While there are some similarities in history and culture across Asian countries, each country and the way its people conduct business is unique.

The most important thing to remember is to be respectful of everyone you meet. If you don't know the right thing to say or do in a business or casual setting, ask rather than make an inaccurate assumption and offend your hosts.

Demonstrating that you are interested in learning and abiding by their norms is one way to show respect. However, even if you cannot learn or adapt to all the traditions of these many countries, here are a few key things to remember when traveling for business.


In Japan, it is common to bow when meeting someone new. However, your hosts may be familiar with Western traditions and offer to shake your hand. Be prepared for either or both forms of greeting and follow the lead of your host. To bow properly, keep your back straight and hands down at your sides. Refrain from putting your hands in your pockets or crossing your arms. As is true in American culture, this is a sign of boredom or disinterest.

Business cards are a bigger deal in Japan than in the United States. When presented with a card, accept it with both hands and read the card. This shows respect and care for the card and person who handed it to you. If you are seated, leave the card out on the table or on your card case. Do not shove the card into you pocket or bag. It's best to keep your own cards in a nice case so they are not bent or dirty when you hand them out.


  • pointing with your fingers or any objects, such as chopsticks or pens.
  • It's not customary and can be considered rude.
  • pointing out someone's mistake. Always be respectful of your hosts and business partners.
  • being late. In fact, be 15 minutes early.


Just as you would in America, offer a firm handshake when meeting someone for business. Similar to Japanese culture, business cards are a big deal. Offer and receive cards with both hands. If possible, print your information in Chinese on one side and English on the other.

Patience and appropriately following up are very important in Chinese business culture. No big decisions are made quickly and you should prepare for longer meetings and speeches. You may be asked to speak as well but keep your remarks short and avoid "taking over" the conversation. Follow up after a meeting with an email highlighting the positive points and decisions, but don't be too extensive with your remarks.

Business is frequently conducted over meals. Learn how to use chopsticks and where to put them when eating. It's best to put them back onto the holder rather than placing them in or on the bowl or plate. If a second meal or meeting is requested, offer to host.


  • being late. Be on time, early if possible.
  • speaking too loudly or quickly. Match the tone of your host.
  • interrupting holidays or being ignorant of superstitions. Respect for tradition is important.
  • pointing with your figures or other objects.


Lucky for Americans, the most common business language in India is English, though Hindu is widely spoken in other areas of the country. Greet your host by saying "Namaste" with your palms together in front of your chest. Offer a slight bow or nod of the head.

Nodding is often a sign of understanding rather than agreement. Be careful not to confuse the two when speaking in business meetings.

Just as is true in China, be aware and respectful of holidays. In the Hindu religion, holidays can last longer than a day or two, so plan your trip accordingly.


  • shaking hands, especially with women, unless the host offers his or her hand first.
  • declining food or drink in a meeting. Accept what is offered so you don't cause offense.

Chinese Fish Recipes – Braised Fish With Black Bean Sauce

Chinese Fish Recipes – Braised Fish With Black Bean Sauce

Fish is an important food source for humans and plays big part in Chinese cuisine. It provides a good source of quality protein, B vitamins, vitamins A, D and calcium. Also present are iodine and fluorine, as well as magnesium and zinc.

The National Geographic Society found that there are high concentrations of un-saturated fatty acids in the large amount of fish.

And these un-saturated fatty acids have the unique power to lower the blood levels of cholesterol and other fats, thus protecting us from the complications of atherosclerosis in the heart, brain, kidneys, and other organs.

Most of the fish dishes serves well with fried rice. This sauce fish recipe – braised fish with black bean sauce is one of my favorite Chinese fish recipes.

The nutrition value in per portion of this dish: Calories: 260; Protein: 285g; Carbohydrate: 14.8g; Fat: 40.9g; Saturated: 5.6g; Sugars: 0g.

Ingredients are: 3 tablespoons black beans, (must soak in warm water for 10 minutes); 3 tablespoons olive oil; 2-3 spring onions (green onions), chopped; 2 inch root ginger, chopped; 1 small red pepper, cored, seeded and chopped; 2 celery sticks, chopped; 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce; 2 tablespoons Chinese rice wine or dry sherry; 600g / 21oz cod or haddock fillets, cut into big chunk or 4 fish cutlets, 150g / 5oz each; 1-2 red chills, chopped (optional).


1. Drain the soaked black beans after 10 minutes and set aside for use.

2. Heat the olive oil in a wok, add chopped ginger, red pepper, red chills (optional) and celery to stir fry for 1 minute.

3. Then stir in the dark soy sauce and Chinese rice wine or dry sherry.

4. Place the fish on the top of the vegetables and simmer for 10 minutes or until the fish are almost tender.

5. Add the black beans into the wok and very gently stir into the fish and cook for further 2 minutes.

6. Add the spring onions (green onions) and transfer the fish to a warm dish. Spoon the sauce over, serve hot.

New King Do Seafood Restaurant Chinese Food Delivery

New King Do Seafood Restaurant Chinese Food Delivery

We tried this new Chinese Restaurant as the place we used to order from doesn’t deliver anymore. It was good. Their chowmein has a little bit of toasted scent to it. The lemon chicken has a really thick and hard batter. It’s 30% chicken in the middle and mostly corn starch. The sweet and sour pork needs more sauce. We’ll give it 5/10.
