Great introduction into Korean food!

Thank you to Gloo Books and Netgalley for providing this e-Arc in exchange for an honest review!

I really enjoyed reading “A Very Asian Guide to Korean Food” by Michelle Li. It is beautifully illustrated and very colorful! A lot of different dishes were shown, both sweet and savory. I liked how Korean traditions and facts about the culture were also incorporated! At the end there even is a recipe for Mandu that everyone should definitely try out!

I think this book is not only great for children to get an introduction into Korean food, but also for adults that would like to know more about it. What this book will definitely make you so is hungry for some great Korean food!
