The Jang Cookbook x Kisoondo Jang Bundle makes it easy to jump into your flavor journey without stepping out for jangs.

Bundle contains:

  • JANG: The Soul of Korean Cooking (More than 60 Recipes Featuring Gochujang, Doenjang, and Ganjang). By Mingoo Kang, with Joshua David Stein, with Nadia Cho.
  • Kisoondo Traditional Doenjang (230g): Soybeans, roasted bamboo salt and water. Keep refrigerated after opening.
  • Kisoondo Traditional Gochujang (230g): Korean glutinous rice, Korean red pepper, Fermented soybean powder, Roasted bamboo salt, Korean soy sauce, Korean malt syrup. Keep refrigerated after opening.

In chef Mingoo Kang’s debut cookbook, JANG: THE SOUL OF KOREAN COOKING, he demystifies jangs while showing how they can be used to make both Korean and Western dishes more delicious. He takes the three main jangs—gochujang, doenjang, or ganjang – and expertly weaves them into 60 accessible, home-cook-friendly dishes that bring the sauces to life, from soups and stews, to salads, marinades, and even desserts. Through artisan profiles, sidebars, and step-by-step photographs, JANG uncovers one of the culinary world’s best-hidden secrets.

The Fermentation Master Ki Soondo’s Traditional Doenjang is crafted with utmost sincerity, using only three ingredients - beans, bamboo salt, and water. Each batch is meticulously prepared by Master Ki, a guardian of time-honored traditions, in the same way that has been kept for 400 years.

Jang (장), or fermentation is the base of all Korean dishes. For thousands of years, gochujang has been the main staple ingredient that rejuvenates one without appetite or even served as a side dish. Fermenting sun-dried gochu (Korean red hot chili) with rice syrup which creates sweetness produces traditional Korean gochujang. Master Ki Soondo makes her own malt for sweet and spicy gochujang making. Putting the nature, tradition and using well-kept secret recipes, Master Ki presents you with an unrivaled gochujang.
