Samsung Cookalong – Korean BBQ Hitchstyle

Team Black is Back

Team Black

Samsung invited me along with other food bloggers, writers and journalists to a Korean cookalong. The event took place in Kanonhallen in Oslo. I want to share some pictures from the event, as well as the recipes for the food I made: Kimchi Express and Pjolter Waffles.

Stian Floer from Hitchhiker in Mathallen was there to share his quick and easy recipes for a Korean BBQ feast. Samsung was there to promote their new “dual cook” ovens, which can cook two dishes at their own temperatures in the same oven. I met my fellow foodies and bloggers Julie and TK. We teamed up for the cookalong.

We appointed Julie to team leader and she took care of the BBQ meat. TK made the Pajeon pancakes and accompanying dip as she had just recently made Korean pancakes at home. I made kimchi and “Pjolter”-waffles, named after my favorite restaurant Pjoltergeist. We were also joined later by Per Asbjørn Risnes, author of the cookbook “Pappamat”, who helped Julie with the meat and made the Korean sallad. In all humbleness I have to say we were quite the dream team. IMG_3344

Kimchi Express

1 Chinese cabbage
1 carrot
a handful of grated ginger
4 tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp Sriracha sauce
2 tbsp Kimchi base

Rince all vegetables in cold water. Cut the cabbage in 2 cm pieces, grate the carrots and ginger. Mix everything in a bowl og rub the salt into it. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

This is all our recipe said. In addition I added some Chinese radish, and I put on plastic gloves and massaged the vegetables with the salt and sauces for 20 minutes. That makes them very soft, and in my opinion makes this express kimchi more similar to proper kimchi.
