My cookbooks

I’ve published a few books about Korean cooking. I self-published 3 very small cookbooks, and then 2 much larger cookbooks were published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. I took all the photos in all my cookbooks!

Maangchi’s Real Korean Cooking

Maangchi's Real Korean Cooking

This book has everything home cooks need to make Korean food and can be used and learned from over years and years. It includes how to make and ferment traditional Korean sauces, pastes, and alcohol, as well as a variety of traditional Korean dishes. Some recipes take years to make, and some take minutes! Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in 2015.

Maangchi’s Big Book of Korean Cooking

Maangchi's Big Book of Korean Cooking

This one is bigger and more colorful and goes deeper into Korean cuisine with chapters on Korean Buddhist temple meals, street food, party food and Korean lunchboxes. It also has more photos. Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in 2019.

Cooking Korean Food With Maangchi

Korean Cooking, Kindle Edition

The series (Book 1, Book 2, and Book 3) were self-published by me from 2008 to 2012. They feature recipes from my website. They’re now a little out of date and out of print but you can download free pdf versions from my website or buy the Kindle bundle of all 3 books on Amazon.
