Yes, remotely but successfully due largely in part by Rumi sharing her expert know-how when it comes to the best tasting (in my humble opinion) kimchi ever ! It’s not too sour nor hot – but just the right complex hotness that’s not overpowering so we can actually taste the goodness of all the labor-intensive amounts of cabbage and radish that’s in there. AND this red chilli pepper, she supplied!! OMG.
Rumi has an michievious infectious laughs and … it’s best to keep your composure – be warned – you do not, and I repeat, do NOT burst out laughing when pouring this red powder substance into the bowl of nappa cabbage, daikon, leeks, green onions, secret other goodies and essence – be warned !
Thank you Rumi-sensei for the instructions and sharing all that knowledge and this … PEPPER !
