What You Need to Know About Kimchi and a little history about kimchi.


To say kimchi is a staple food in Korea is an understatement! Koreans eat kimchi with every meal. The average Korean consumes about 22 kg of kimchi per year,

It is said that the average Korean adult consumes at least one serving (100g) of kimchi a day, that is an average of 60 grams of kimchi per day. That is unless they go on a kimchi binge and devour a whole bowl, like us! My mom would always tell me, „You can’t eat kimchi by itself! You have to eat some rice!!“ while pushing the rice bowl into my hands and trying to take away my kimchi! Koreans have funny rules about food!
