HI SOO SHIN HEPINSTALL began her serious culinary and cultural research while living in Europe in the 1970s. After attending a summer course at Cordon Bleu Cooking School in Paris, she continued her studies in Seoul, Korea, and Southeast Asia. In addition, she has written two novels, one of which won a Korean literary prize and was made into a popular movie. She lives in Washington, D.C.


"Hepinstall's recipes range from hearty, nutritious staples to savory favorites. . . There's also an enticing repertoire of side dishes and dipping sauces. Granted, some recipes may require a visit to a Korean grocer, but the results are worth the trip." --Cooking Light"The recipes have a rooted quality found only in the most exceptional cookbooks. . . This is the breakthrough introduction to Korean cuisine many of us have been waiting for."--Gourmet"So well-written, with such enticing recipes, that you'll want to head for the kitchen."--Dallas Morning News "In her book, Hi Soo Shin Hepinstall brings clarity to this complicated cuisine."--Washington Post"Even for those who love to eat Korean food in restaurants, there is something vaguely mysterious about the cooking . . . Aggravating that situation has been a relative dearth of Korean cookbooks. Until now, that is. GROWING UP IN A KOREAN KITCHEN is part memoir, part travelogue, part recipe book--and wholly satisfying." --a Top 10 Cookbooks of 2001, the Los Angeles Times "An approachable collection." --New York Daily News "This new cookbook vividly reveals the subtle nuances of Korean cuisine in a simple yet dynamic fashion, focusing on not only the food, but also the lifestyle or rural Korea . . . We held a Korean tasting dinner with recipes made from the book, and found the dishes incredibly delicious and quite easily prepared." --the Austin Chronicle "Best Cookbooks of 2001. . . . guides us through the maze of complicated Korean cooking . . . takes time to explain the spiritual significance of the food." --People magazine "A love letter to [Hepinstall's] homeland, with all of its traditions and rituals." As for recipes, "we are given a rich selection to choose from." --The Seattle Times "Part autobiography and part cookbook, this remarkable work provides a practical introduction to a cuisine Americans have encountered with delight and a poignant memoir of a time and place in which an average family meal could consist of seven or more dishes."--from the Cookbook "WHAT WE'RE READING" "This introduction to the world of Korean cooking [is] as practical as it is evocative." --Food & Wine"For cooks who really want to delve into the mysteries of Korean cooking, I can strongly recommend GROWING UP IN A KOREAN KITCHEN. --Denver Rocky Mountain News "Hi Soo Shin Hepinstall has a clear, sure voice. Her recipes are direct and easy to follow, and her descriptions and explanations helps us understand the roots of this familiar and appealing cuisine." --Naomi Duguid and Jeffrey Alford, authors of Hot Sour Salty Sweet, Seductions of Rice, and Flatbreads and Flavors"This book enriches and expands every cook's kitchen with new knowledge and flavors." --Hiroko Shimbo, author of The Japanese Kitchen"Growing Up in a Korean Kitchen is the most comprehensive Korean cookbook to date.

This is one." --Barbara Tropp, author of The Modern Art of Chinese Cooking and China Moon Cookbook"It went straight to my heart." --Grace Young, author of The Wisdom of the Chinese Kitchen"Memories of Hi Soo Shin Hepinstall's childhood are lovingly recorded . . .
