The dish name translates as ‘mix mix rice’ and there’s a lot to do – the shopping, the preparation of ingredients and the fun of eating. Tuck in for there’s a recipe at the end!

Travel Guide

The world of Korean food comes alive with the simple joy of watching a young girl prepare the meal of Bee- Bim Bop. Even the name sounds like a song and the whole story is told in rhyme –

“Hurry, Mama, hurry / Gotta shop shop shop! / Hungry hungry hungry / for some BEE-BIM BOP!”.

After you go to the market, prepare the food and start cooking, you will be as hungry as the family in the story.

You can almost smell the process – what with the egg pancakes, the steaming rice and the spices.

By the end, when you’re salivating, happily there is a recipe which shows the parts the child does and those her mother does so it really is a joy to share with a child in every way!

The illustrations are inspired by the illustrators childhood and show many aspects of a Korean kitchen and home life.
