For me, cooking foreign dishes gives me great pleasure because it helps me develop my sensitivity towards a foreign language. It does not matter whether I am learning that language actively or not. If I love to eat what I am about to prepare, it opens the door for me to assimilate with the new language without effort. Learning becomes fun.
I have always wanted to make Sushi. The inspiration and motivation finally came. It was sparked by my Korean friend, who told me many things I could not have found out without talking to a native. Sushi in Korea is called “Gimbap” or some spell it as “Kimbap”. The basic wrapping method is the same for both Japanese Sushi and Korean Gimbap. You can easily find details of how to make them on the internet. I used beef bacon, egg and carrots for my Sushi.
Here’s what I think about this whole experience. Yesterday, I made Sushi. Today, I learn that Sushi in Korea is called Gimbap. Perhaps tomorrow, I will learn how to say, “Would you like to try my Sushi?” in either Korean or Japanese language. The point is, learning a new language does not have to start from a book or greeting phrase. You are already learning when you become sensitive towards the culture, food or people associated to the language.
