Tasty Tips

Kimchi is a traditional Korean side dish of spicy fermented veggies. Napa cabbage, cucumbers and daikon radish are the most commonly available varieties. It is usually sold in glass jars in the refrigerated section of the produce department of the grocery store.

Shichimi togarashi, or Japanese seven spice, is made with a blend of Japanese chili peppers, citrus zest, sansho peppercorns, nori, ginger and black & whites sesame seeds.
