National Potato Month: Celebrate Korean-style

According to the wild and wacky calendars out there, September is National Potato Month in the U.S.

Before you get out the bagpipes and start singing "Danny Boy," you should know that potatoes are quite popular in Korea as well, particularly in the northern, mountainous areas. That love of potatoes in Korea inspired my videos Korean latkes (potato pancakes, 감자전) and Korean potato salad (감자 샐러드).

Koreans use potatoes to make side dishes, noodles and pancakes as well as an accompaniment to dishes such as dak-kalbi. Here are some Korean potato dishes you can make and enjoy this month.

맛있어요! (Mega yummy!)
