Isn’t that arrangement so exquisite!   About the translation, I tried my best to translate this article.  But… some of the herbs… well I should say all the herbs! are unknown to me!  So… if you are cooking the recipes on Pg. 41 use your common sense if something seems off!  There is a video for the second recipe and it does help a lot to understand it!  I included it right after.  I made that last recipe and even thought I had to change most of the ingredients it came out so good!  You can see a video of my version in the WITAT area at the end of the post.

Well, this surely expanded my knowledge of herbs!  The only herbs I cook with are: parsley, cilantro, basil, thyme, oregano, and rosemary.  So now I have some to look out for thanks to Il-woo SSi!   I don’t think they sell any of these in the American supermarkets so I’ll have to try HMart!  I especially want to find Shepherd’s Purse!  What a name!  Talking about names, I think I’ll pass on the herb named cemetery moss…!

Well… I couldn’t find any of those herbs nor clams!  Still, I tried making the last recipe as best as I could. I used our variety of clams.  Clam chowder is a staple of Boston, and steamers (boiled clams) are too.  So I bought come long necked clams and steamers and replaced the herb added by the end by baby chard.  … and used parsley…! It came out really delicious!!!

This is the video of my version:


What? Do you want to see chef Il-woo you say?  OK… here he is!!!
