About

The wife is usually in charge of this Korean appetizer dish called gaeran mari (stuffed egg omelette) because it takes some finesse (which I lack) and real cooking skills to roll the omelette at the right time. So far, I have failed incredibly two times, simply because I started flipping/curling too early and it broke to pieces...........full story and recipe at http://www.oliviajasonkim.com
