Kimchee is the hottest new thing in American cuisine. Popularized as accompaniment to Korean BBQ, seen on Buford Highway, and by celebrity chefs like David Chang of PBS/Netflix streaming series “Mind of a Chef”, “Kimchee” equals “Korean.” Superfood and mainstay of Korean cuisine, Kimchee has been made for centuries to preserve freshly-harvested produce. There are as many variations of kimchee as households in Korea.
