Just thought this was interesting. When I was growing up, our neighbor across the street — who was good friends with my mom — was Korean. She and her husband met and married while he was in the military, and moved back to the U.S. I was fascinated when I found out that the shed in their back yard contained a fully functioning kitchen. Her husband built it for her, so she could make Kimchi without the smell permeating the house. But sometimes I’d smell it if I went outside. I smelled it again in college, when I Korean housemate in the boarding house I lived in would have it with his meals. But until now, I never knew how kimchi is made.
