Since I teach ESL and have students from all over the world stay with us, I try to celebrate their culture and special holidays with them. Of course, they are immersed in Canadian culture, but I also think it’s wonderful to celebrate their own culture. We all learn a great deal from each other.
I felt a little sad that our student didn’t get to spend Chuseok with her family, so I wanted to have a Chuseok celebration for her right here on Manitoulin Island. We scoured recipes online to prepare a feast. She really wanted to have kimchi buchimgae.
* kimchi, cut into slivers
* egg(s), beaten
The recipe in the video calls for salt, but kimchi itself is really high in salt. We just omitted it from the recipe. I don’t really follow measurements (just go by taste), so I just wrote the ingredients above without the measurements. For baking, because it’s a science, I follow exact measurements. For cooking, I just go by taste.
Add ingredients in a bowl and mix together. In a hot skillet or pan, add oil. Scoop batter onto skillet. Cook until golden and then flip. Cook as though you are cooking a pancake. When both sides are browned to perfection, remove from skillet and enjoy!
