"Korean food has really made its mark in Australia over the last five years, and rightly so. It's packed with flavour, steeped in culture and they've perfected so many wonderful cooking techniques," says Evans. "One of their signature dishes, that most people have heard of, is kimchi, a dish of spiced fermented cabbage that pretty much rocks my world on a weekly basis. We always have a few jars of kimchi in our fridge at home that we make from scratch and, like other fermented vegetables, it's full of beneficial bacteria, which our guts love. It's important to note that once fermented vegetables are heated, they lose this bacteria."
Note Gochugaru is available from Korean and Asian grocers.
