Hooni Kim, author of “My Korea: Traditional Flavors, Modern Recipes,” is in the Munchies Test Kitchen to share his recipe for kimchi jjigae, or aged kimchi stew, a comforting dish packed with flavor and health benefits. Hooni explains the technique and science behind making kimchi, which preserves a vegetable’s nutrition as well as its flavor and texture through fermentation. Using ingredients like dashi, gochugaru (Korean chili pepper), silken tofu, and scallions, Hooni prepares this stew with kimchi aged three weeks, which imparts an intense and savory flavor.
