ACK! Marmot beat me to it on this one. It arrived in my mailbox yesterday, and I puttered around on posting it.
Turns out that CIA professor John Nihoff, who I know as one of the judges on “Iron Chef America,” was promoting Korean food recently. He also stated that Japanese food concentrates too much on pretty packaging, which I agree to some extent. And the Chinese food is too varied to pin down–which I don’t think is a reason to not like it.
Nonetheless, I agree with his sentiments on Korean food itself. It has health and flavor, the Holy Grail of health food for Americans.
