Kimchi is a very emotional affair for me personally. When I tried kimchi for the first time as an adult, it brought back memories of my early childhood in South Korea. Kimchi is a dish of fermented vegetables, traditionally Chinese cabbage and radish although other vegetables can also be used. The fermentation process is similar to that of sauerkraut. Kimchi gets its characteristic red colour and flavour from the addition of paprika. In Korea, kimchi comes in many varieties and can be eaten with almost any meal. It also goes very well with raclette.
