Korean student Shannon Kim came to Melbourne five months ago, and it’s the first time she has lived so far away from her family. And as we all know, food has a way of reminding us of home, and we asked Shannon to show us some of her cooking skills.

She tells us that Koreans love sharing with their friends, and she invited us into her kitchen as she whipped up her favourite dish for us, Jeon, otherwise known as Korean pancakes.

Jeon is a family staple for Korean families, and can be found nearly everywhere in Korea. There are many variations of this basic recipe, with the addition of ingredients such us seafood, vegetables and other sauces.

This is Shannon’s recipe.

Pour half of the mixture into a frying pan for one pancake, and cook at medium heat. Make sure to flip the pancake regularly to get a nice and even brown colour.

Repeat with the remaining batter.

Plate up the pancakes, cut it up into slices and enjoy!

About

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
