Chuncheon alfredo secrets

Chuncheon alfredo secrets

I designed the T-shirt myself and uploaded it to If you want your own, you can get one here. I made this video around the time that Bae Yong Joon was suffering a serious shoulder injury during the final weeks of filming the Korean TV miniseries Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi (The Legend). He was actually on vacation in the U.S. at the time. I had hoped he would come out to Sonoma County to research his upcoming project, a Korean TV miniseries Drops of God, which is based on the Japanese manga by the same name, but it was not meant to be.

Even though I had made the shirt specifically for this video, when it came time to do the video I got cold feet because I knew that most people would not understand it because it’s in Koreanized English, a.k.a. konglish. When I expressed my concerns to my husband, his reply was, “Well, it wouldn’t be the first time someone wore a T-shirt that made no sense.”

This was also the first video I made where I discuss more than one recipe. As I was developing this video, I tried two different recipes for the alfredo sauce base. I tested both versions repeatedly on my family, friends and my husband’s co-workers before I made a final decision. The deciding factor was which sauce reheated better, i.e., oil and sauce wouldn’t separate. Heavy cream makes a creamier sauce, but cream cheese keeps the sauce looking good the second day.

Because a pound of pasta serves four to eight people, depending on whether the pasta is the side dish or the main meal, people usually have leftovers. My testing showed that the version using the cream cheese reheated more nicely. But we made a slide with the recipe for the other option anyway because people have a right to make their own decision.
