What is Kimchi?

In Korean cuisine, kimchi is a staple side dish. The most common form of kimchi is spicy fermented nappa cabbage, known in Korean as baechu kimchi. Widely used through East Asia, nappa cabbage is a robust variety of the leafy vegetable. 

 

However, kimchi is a diverse dish. It can be made spicy to non-spicy, using a variety of vegetables. The unique qualities of kimchi are tied to its fermentation. As time passes, the fresh and crisp kimchi develops into a tangy and deep flavour.
