Cucumber Kimchi





I have just borrowed 'Eating Korean' by Cecilia Hae-Jin Lee as i wanted to read about Korean culture so that i can pass them to my grandchildren and incidently on the same day, i received this email from Michael Geary-
"Hi Lily,
I hope all is well. I wanted to briefly share with you a new interview with Korean chef and cookbook writer, Cecilia Hae-Jin Lee, being featured on Guideposts.com. Lee discusses her parents, her immigration to America, and what lead her to writing a cookbook. The interview is available here, and I thought you and your readers might find what Lee has to say really interesting.
Let me know if you have any questions or if you're able to post about the video.
Thanks so much for your time,
Mike" Whenever i make Cabbage Kimchi, i will make more Kimchi Sauce so that i can make Cucumber Kimchi. Cucumber Kimchi is the favorite in our household, there is no chance for fermention as they will be gone as soon as they served.
