“In my family, especially, budae jjigae is a feast.” Eric Kim is a cooking columnist, cookbook author and son of South Korean immigrants. He shared the 10 essential Korean dishes that, for him, define the cuisine, and budae jjigae had to be on the list. Budae jjigae, which translates to “army base stew” and whose ingredients are made up of leftover army rations, tells many stories: of the Korean War, of resilience and of survival.
