One of my new favorite things to make: pickled eggs!

I brought a jar of pickled beetroot back from the UK last week, and added a few to get that pretty pink color, but even without, they're a great way to have an egg a day without having to cook for breakfast. One of those, a mug of tea, and a few mandarin oranges and it's a nice, light meal.

Homeplus in Jamsil has hot dog buns. I have also seen Johnsonville (not great but better than nothing) bratwursts and Italian sausage there, although not on a regular basis. They just spring up every now and then.

The foreign food market in Itaewon (the main one) has cottage cheese.

I have also been informed that the E-mart at Yongsan station has it, but I'll have to check that out.

About a week ago, I roasted some halved cherry tomatoes in my oven. I didn't add any oil or spices, because, after they were finished, I put the roasted tomatoes and some basil leaves in some olive oil. I let them infuse for about 4 or 5 days, then made some whole-wheat spaghetti, added pesto, and the roasted tomatoes. I served it with a poached egg on top. Nomnomnom

Now, I have the olive oil and basil leaves left over, so am going to brush it over some whole-wheat pizza dough with some sliced tomatoes and bake it this weekend.


That sounds amazing. Where did you get fresh basil? I'd try growing it but the last time I tried it died. Sad

I usually just get it from Itaewon or my friend, who grows it. Mine died too. I just don't have the space for a garden, like back home. Ah well.

One of my friends makes cheeses, and has recently started making feta (he already made brie, blue, a hybrid of the two, fresh mozzarella, and a ricotta-style cheese) which I used to make whole-wheat English muffin pizzas today.

Tomorrow, I'm pickling beets and hard boiled eggs.

That's awesome. Do you know where your friend gets the seeds? I think I might try growing it again.

Just letting everybody know since I read the food thread and didn't see a mention of it, there's a Dean & Deluca's in the basement of the Shinsegae department store in Seocho/Gangnam (Express Bus Terminal station). You can find TONS of things there that you can't find at most other places in Seoul. I saw goat cheese, steel cut oats, sage, and real vanilla extract, among other things. A bit on the expensive side compared to the way some just-out-of-college expats live, but pretty standard if you're used to the cost of living in New York or London or other big cities.

I've seen the Johnsonville brats at Costco. I've seen sauerkraut at Foreign Food Mart in Itaewon.

@zpeanut Rough puff pastry is easy to make, and a good substitute for the more tricky puff pastry

Hey,
I got a major craving for pies recently, and decided to try and whip a couple up at my school (there's a kitchen).

My question, I've never been a pro at making pastry, generally springing for frozen pie shells.

Has anyone seen frozen pie shells in Korea? (I live in Incheon)

If I can't track them down I'll just jury-rig something with cracker crumbs and butter Razz

Could anyone please suggest me a store which sells canned curry pastes? I am talking about the ones where you can get from Canada, USA, UK and India...

Should I try Itaewon?

I brought couple cans over, LOL, but I'm running low!

Large tub of plain (unsweetened) yogurt now available at Yongsan IPark Mall E-Mart. It is a bit on the mild side (not very tangy) but not sweet. It's by Maeil brand. At first I thought it was the large Denmark sour cream, looks very similar but the label is white. Costs a little under 5000 won for 900 g.
