Korean food is not comfort food?

Tammy takes her Korean food (especially dakbulgogi) very seriously.

John Kessler, a food writer/blogger for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution posted his latest article called Chef’s Night Out with Tom Colicchio, about a chef’s night out with Top Chef Judge Tom Colicchio and local Top Chef alumni Richard Blais and Kevin Gillespie.

Over the course of the article, and the evening, the chefs had a couple of brief conversations about Korean cuisine. Gillespie obviously is not a Koreaphile by any stretch of the imagination. In one comment he dismisses Korean food by saying, “I’m not into Korean food,” says Gillespie. “It’s so [expletive] fishy.” He later goes on to say, “Korean food is not comforting at all.”

Speak for yourself, Mr. Gillespie. Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines comfort food as, “food prepared in a traditional style having a usually nostalgic or sentimental appeal.” Sounds like Korean food to me!
