A Little Bit of Kimchi

Another discovery at the NRA show was from Korea--by way of Indiana.

Sunny's Korean Restaurant is based in Mishawaka, Indiana, but their impact goes way past that community.

Chef Ashley Simone and Sunny
Now the restaurant has been running for 20 years.  And what Sunny found is that there was a demand for the flavorings she uses in her food.  So she is now marketing Sunny's Teriyaki Sauce and Sunny's Kimchee Kit.

If you know anything about Korean food, you've heard of Kimchi. It's a traditional Korean dish that is  fermented and pickled. It's a side dish of vegetables, eaten at every meal. Another thing about Kimchi is that it has a strong odor. And it's hot. Sinus-clearing hot.

It's also "hot" in the culinary and healthy living communities. Some call it one of the world's healthiest foods, and the reason why obesity is not a problem in Korea.  

I came away with several packets of their Kimchee Kit. Sunny pointed out that there's no MSG in her products. Also no Gluten. All the ingredients are natural. I got to sample the product simply tossed with fresh cucumbers. It was super tasty.

I'm not sure yet how I am going to use my kimchee kit.  I could go the traditional route. Or maybe I'll use these flavorings on something a little different. It has so many possibilities from appetizers to cocktails. Whatever it will be, it'll be Foodgasmic, I'm sure.
