Character posters out for Le Grand Chef 2

Posters are out for the upcoming Le Grand Chef 2: Kimchi War, which is the sequel to the hit 2007 film that also spawned a hit television drama.

Kimchi War looks like it’s taking the formula that made both previous projects work — cinematic flair and an eye for beautiful food photography — while only being based loosely on the original film (which was in turn based on a popular manhwa). Kim Jung-eun plays a perfectionist chef, while Jin Gu takes over for the Sung-chan role previously played by Kim Kang-woo in the film and Kim Rae-won in the drama Gourmet.

On Kim Jung-eun’s character poster, the copy reads “My cuisine is about pride,” as she poses proudly holding her dish aloft. Jin Gu’s reads, “My cuisine is a story.”

Le Grand Chef 2: Kimchi War is planning for a 2010 release. Watch the trailer below:

Yay! So looking forward to this movie! I was talking about it to my friend before, and she thought it was silly... a movie about Kimchi. But since my mom specializes in traditional Korean cooking, there's no easy way to make Kimchi.

It's like in all those cheap restaurants and Kimchi jars that taste completely awful, and all those Americanized versions of Korean food even in Korean restaurants. But you have to put in all the right ingredients, wash the cabbage, put salt, let it soak, and than dry the cabbage within the hands like if it was silk dubu and than put in all the ingredients. The single amount of salt and sugar affects every single bit and the quality of ingredients... I probably sound like a weirdo talking about Kimchi this way, but as my mom taught me how to cook... every st [Read more]

I love Korean food and I love most kinds of kimchi. And I love to cook. So I will look forwards to this movie, just like the other two versions. Only one thing I don't hype too much: I have never liked the overacting KJE.

@ Biscuit,

By all means continue your rant, I mean educational explanation, about kimchi. I myself love kimchi and only buy the homemade stuff by my local korean grocer. She makes the best kimchi in my area.

Also, I would love to visit the kimchi museum in Korean one day and take a workshop on how to make kimchi.

Do you know of any places/areas in the US that I could find "traditional" kimchi? I would be interested try traditonal korean kimchi.

As for the movie, I am looking forward to watching it (w/Eng subs) :-)

I only like cucumber kimchi. I've tried cabbage and radish but they weren't very tasty...the ones that I got anyway.

Love Love Korean Food. I had Kimbap for lunch that I bought from a local Korean store and making pork belly with banchan tonight for me and my Hubby. He's half-Korean...I'm Filipino.

@Biscuit, you are so right on, I come from a long line of Mexican Chefs, grandma, mom, unties, sister, and brothers. And when cooking traditional food one must stick to the basics.
I have had the opportunity to eat what I consider to be some pretty good Kimchi but since I am not Korean I do not have the knowledge of what traditional Kimchi is supposed to taste like , so please be a beacon of light for us who would like to get closer to Kimchi Heaven...May you please post a recipe...Thank you Lots!!!! : O )
P.S I like Kimchi on the sour side of the spectrum.......

Wow, that's AWEsome!!! i wish i had a mom who cooked traditional Korean food, esp. Kimchi. So weird, but i've already had 3 different conversations about making kimchi! My sister & two (non-Korean) friends have all said they wanted to try making Kimchi & we ended up having these long conversations because i told them how difficult it is to make Kimchi and all the little nuances that goes into making it... =) yes, i agree with Amg1. Please share a recipe with us~

Eh………….. I lost control and started ranting on Kimchi but I didn’t think it would lead to this TT__TT

To be honest, it’s easy to get a recipe of how to make Kimchi. Most recipe’s that show how to make Kimchi are correct, but are mostly merely an outline of the process. “Cut the cabbage, salt, sit, squeeze, than add the ingredients.” But the closest illustration I could compare that with is like making custard. The basic ingredients are simple, but even the simple way you whisk the custard will ultimately reflect on the outcome. My mom always says, making Kimchi could be looked as part of art where the cabbage must be treated like a gentle flower.

To be honest, telling the exact amount of ingredients to put in is hard for me as I was taught by my mom to use the eye, [Read more]

KIm Jung Eun last movie was a hit, the "Best Moment." She was great as a coach in that movie. Jin gu's "Mother" movie was a hit too. So, I would expect this movie to be a hit with two famous celebrity in Korea.

KImchi is fast making a hit in ASia. Korea is highly promoting their Kimchi and I think supporting this movie too. All the best for Kim Jung Eun and Jin Gu.

@ 13 Biscuit

Thank you for sharing.. I saved it as 'Kimchi by Biscuit' and had a LOL moment for a while... kekekek

Wil be hunting for the hot pepper at the Koren food section. Ricer flour paste? is this a secret indgredient ? Don't remember seeing it on one of the Youtube vids.

My kids loves kimchi - we usually bought the one Made In Korea at the supermarket (can't recall the brand).. so thanks again!

Kim jung Eun, a coach and now a chef? She is making big leaps to her roles. Let's watch. She is versatile. Overacting? I can't say yet. Let's wait for this movie to be out then make comments after. But I like her acting in Lovers in Paris. She has a natural flow in acting.

KIMCHI all the way. I would love to see this movie. Looks mouth-watering. But, I don't know how to chop the way they do. I cook but can't chop as fast as them. Watch KJE and Jin gu's hands.

Love, love them both.

@D Rice flour paste is not a secret ingredient, but an often forgotten ingredient.

Usually it's 1/2 cup rice-flour, 3- 4 cups of water. It's pretty thick, and you have to continuously stir it gently with the fire on low. If you don't, parts of it will look like mook. Continue to stir til bubbles pop out, than take it off the stove and let it cool.

Actually, if you don't have Sweet Rice Flour or can't find any, you can just use regular baking flour.

Since pear already has natural sweetness, you don't need the mixture to be sweet..

And in case you use delicate cabbage, softly touch the cabbage and only rinse once. If not, you'll get bitter cabbage. This is why cabbage must be treated with delicacy ^^;;;

Everyone kept saying "Kim Jung Eun" and I'm like who? That [Read more]

I know Kim Jung Eun since 2004. She has good acting in Lovers in Paris. She was even in Taiwan to thank them of her famous drama series. She is well-known in some Asian countries. Aja aja Kim jung Eun. Kimchi, I love kimchi.

@25 Whew:

I know who Kim Jung Eun is and the extent of her popularity. What I meant was that at the poster, I mistook her face for Sohn Tae Young. I completely didn't see that she was in fact Kim Jung Eun, and so when people were mentioning KJE, I was completely lost ^^;;

Biscuit,

Oh, I can't even tell she's Sohn in the picture. Anyway, if you mistook her for Sohn, that is no big deal. But sure, KJE's name was mention above in this page. he he he.

@ Biscuit..

thanks for the clarification on the rice paste. we hv rice flour in Malaysia. should be the same everwhere, right?

i just bought the korean chili paste, 500g @ RM18.90 at Cold Storage (the 1kg tub would be cheaper but lets start small, ya..) next stop would be the fresh market tomorrow for the Chinese cabbage.

and then as i added your latest note, i saw 'moo' - pray tell what is that?

@Whew, yeah that's why I almost slapped myself when I realized her name was mentioned, heh heh.

Beh-Chu = use Nappa Cabbage.
Moo = Daikon Raddish.

Rice flour... I'm not sure if it's the same in Malaysia. But you can use regular flour (white, un-bleached).
