Kimchi stew with miso sardines

Raw Seafood (Sashimi)



Whisky with Soda

A good one-pot meal for the whole family. It is hearty and warms you up especially as the months get colder. It is easy to prepare ahead and warmed up or finished on the day you are planning to eat. Can be accompanied with rice or noodles. This is a good opportunity to use up all of the vegetables you have in your fridge.
