Kimchi Fried Rice
Wing Yip's supermarket and what a wonderful place! They had Kimchi galore! I bought fresh Kimchi from the chiller cabinet, tinned Kimchi and Kimchi in jars! I also bought many other ingredients that I had previously been unable to get or were too expensive in normal supermarkets (the prices at Wing Yip's are fantastic) along with sensible size bags of spices. If you love Asian food and are close enough, Wing Yip's is worth going to every few months to stock up as it would definitely save money. Anyway, apart from eating Kimchi straight from its bag, jar or tin, I have started experimenting with different recipes. Today we had Kimchi Fried Rice which was delicious, even a sceptical Pete thoroughly enjoyed it and it is definitely something that I will cook on a regular basis. The other bonus was that it was ready to eat very quickly, just what you need when you get in from work. So that's new recipe number 2. I promise there will be an update on the kitchen and barge soon!
