Hello all. I have a few questions for those of you well versed in the rawness. I am now in the position where I can start making my own dishes and start the transition of being mostly raw. I say this because for the past 4 years I have basically lived on a ship (not a pirate but rather a sailor).
So many of these recipes look amazing and for the past six months I have been making a list of this I wanted to make. However, I am so lost when it comes to alot of the ingredients and how tos of it all. Is there a book out there that will teach me the basics?
The other hard part is I am now living in Seoul, South Korea. Besides not being able to speak Korean or read Hangul, I don’t think many of the ingredients used are available here. Now if stinky fish and other weird sea creatures were called for I would be golden. It’s even hard to eat anything vegetarian. So many times I have ordered what I thought was going to be vegetarian to find some kind of shell or spam-like object (from what I have been told by locals only beef and pork are considered meat) floating around. So the whole raw thing def could not be translated.
Does anyone know if I can order what isn’t available here online and have it shipped to me? I can either us my Korean address or Military one.
Please help! I don’t want to be stuck eating wimpy salads for the rest of my time here.
An Nyung hee ga se yo.
