Welcome to voting for our February COTM. A tabulation of nominations shows we’ll have something of a Korean shootout this month, choosing from the collected work of Maangchi or Korean American by Eric Kim. Given relatively low recent participation, I’m not particularly inclined to combine them and splinter things among even more sources, but I’m willing to entertain arguments.
HOW TO VOTE: You may vote for only one selection. Please vote with the intention of participating should your choice win. To vote, use the fork-and-knife icon located on the post below with your choice. If you change your mind, you may deselect the icon if it’s within the brief allowed window, or if not, make a post letting me know.
VOTING WILL CLOSE on TUESDAY, JANUARY 24 at 10 PM GMT/5 PM EST/2PM PST.
I love Maangchi’s cookbook and recipes. She is pretty traditional in her approach. That being said, I am super excited about Korean American food as presented by Eric Kim and his family’s Americanized recipes. I’ve made a few dishes of his and a ton of hers. And still, I am voting for Eric. Not because Maangchi is less. But because I am just plain excited about Eric’s stuff.
