I have been resucked into the world of mukbang – broadcasted food eating. For a while I was watching videos on YouTube featuring eaters speaking Korean and even though I didn’t understand what they were saying I still loved watching them. The enjoyment of food needs no translation or explanation. They ate some pretty bad garbage though. American cheese, ramen, fried chicken, fast food burgers. Often enjoyed with kimchee. (That’s what inspired me to make kimchee actually. It’s been a long time since I’ve fermented any vegetables though. I’m still eating my way through a large jar of fermented cabbage.)
Anyway I stopped watching Korean mukbangs for a long time and recently rediscovered it on YouTube when I stumbled on this English-speaking mukbang hosted by MommyTang. She’s a loud-mouthed, opinionated, stay-at-home mother of 4 and I love her. Her children are often featured in her videos, which is entertaining. Oh and she also happens to be vegan and I’ve picked up some good simple vegan recipes. Asian cuisine really lends itself well to being vegan. So I am hooked! Also, true to mukbangs that I’ve seen, she eats kimchee with almost every meal, even Dominoes pizza. It fired up my desire to make kimchee once again. A meal just isn’t complete without some good ol’ kimchee! So that’s what I did last weekend.
