2012 Makgeolli Festival (우리술대축제)

2012 Makgeolli Festival (우리술대축제)

Posted October 13, 2012 by Aaron

It's like wine tasting, except all in one place and all free. However, the site is mostly Korean (and some of the English bits aren't so great), so I thought I'd translate parts of it and add a bit of explanation based on last year's experience.

A Taste of Hawaii

A Taste of Hawaii

Hawaii is often described as a cultural melting pot, and nowhere is this more evident than in the vast array of traditional and fusion food in Honolulu, where Annie and I have spent most of our lives. We visited Honolulu for two weeks in November 2011, and over those weeks, we revisited our old favorites and found some new ones, including a few food trucks. We also made sure to fill up on a things that are expensive or difficult to find in Seoul, yet plentiful in Hawaii (like sushi and pie).

Making sandwiches the hard way

Making sandwiches the hard way

Every now and then we like to make sandwiches. However, we haven't found a sandwich bread we like, so I make my own, with whole wheat flour, oatmeal and flaxseed (a recipe borrowed from a book called 올 아바웃 브레드.
