Taste Korea, or ‘Proef Koera’ in Dutch, is a cookbook curated by the chef Ae Jin. This cookbook showcases a collection of Korean recipes, emphasizing accessibility by featuring locally available ingredients. Each ingredient is presented with its own image, illustrating that the rich food culture of Korea can be authentically reproduced using accessible and local components.

To further enhance accessibility, the recipes in Taste Korea are organized by color of the main ingredient rather than alphabetically. This intentional arrangement is used to break language barriers and rather focus on the recipes on a visual level rather than textual. The color-coded system serves as a visual guide on the index of the book

In a fusion of typographic styles, the book integrates elements from the Korean alphabet and language with Latin scripts, by the use of vertical alignment of texts and Korean-inspired emoticons.

 

The book is published by Lannoo and available in three languages (English, Dutch and German).
