A Comic Book With Recipes
COOK KOREAN! is a New York Times Bestseller cookbook graphic novel, with 64 Korean recipes, ingredient profiles, personal and cultural anecdotes presented through light-hearted comics.
Picture It: You Can Master Korean Cooking
Fun to look at and easy to use, this unique combination of cookbook and a graphic novel is the ideal introduction to cooking Korean cuisine at home. Robin Ha’s colorful and humorous one- to three-page comics fully illustrate the steps and ingredients needed to bring more than sixty traditional (and some not-so-traditional) dishes to life.
In these playful but exact recipes, you’ll learn how to create everything from easy kimchi (mak kimchi) and soy garlic beef over rice (bulgogi dupbap) to seaweed rice rolls (gimbap) and beyond. Friendly and inviting, Cook Korean! is perfect for beginners and seasoned cooks alike who want to try their hand at this wildly popular cuisine.
“Simple, straightforward, and totally charming, Robin Ha’s Cook Korean! is yet another example of why every cookbook should actually be a comic book.”
—Amanda Cohen, chef/owner Dirt Candy

So go pick up your copy of cook Korean! and confidently engage in your next conversation about the hottest cuisine in America.”
