Kimchi Chronicles

The Noodle and Dumpling Chronicles

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Like an Italian with a bowl of spaghetti or tortellini, nothing satisfies a Korean more than eating a bowl of noodles or dumplings. In Korea, slurping is not only permitted, it is considered a compliment to the cook. This episode features a restaurant in Seoul known for its nenngymyun, an unusual dish of elastic buckwheat noodles served with ice-cold beef broth. Marja also visits a spot known for the best kalgooksu, or hand-cut noodles, and another beloved restaurant famous for its hefty portions of mandoo (dumplings) . At home in New York, Marja prepares jajangmyeon her favorite comfort food of chewy noodles with savory black bean sauce. Both Marja and Jean-Georges interpret refreshingly cold noodle soups and Jean-Georges puts his spin on chapchae, the popular Korean noodle and vegetable stir-fry. Let the slurping begin.
