Korean Food Tip: Susie’s Keuken – 겐트처자
I have oftentimes said learning a language is more than just learning words and grammar. It is also about learning about the culture. The most delicious part of any culture is its food, of course. I am blessed I can count one of the sweetest and most talented cooks from Busan, Susie (수지). Today I want to take my time to introduce you to her, her instagram account “Susie’s Keuken – 겐트처자”, and kindly push you to follow this national treasure from Busan.
Busan’s National Treasure
I met Susie the same year I met my Korean friend. She is one of my friend’s most dearest friends, she is his 누나. It wouldn’t surprise you if you ever meet Susie. She is perhaps one of the kindest and caring woman I ever had the pleasure to meet. However, her true gifts is not her kindness, but her talents in the kitchen. The amazing food she prepares both tastes and looks amazing, every single time. It always puts my food to shame.
Susie is original from Busan, the southern metropolis of South-Korea. However, now she lives with her Dutch husband in the Belgian town of Gent where she creates small miracles in her kitchen everyday. She is Busan’s National Treasure in Belgium. Whenever I have a question on Korean food I simply turn to her. She always has the right answer ready for me. She has saved my kimchi more times than I would ever admit publicly. So to return the favour even slightly I want to convince everyone who reads my blog to go and subscribe to her wonderfully delicious instagram account.

Susie’s Instagram account is not focused singularly focused on Korean food. She cooks whatever she wants which is a mix of foods from all over the world. However, when she does do Korean food she cooks the way her family makes the dishes so in a way quite traditionally. However, because she is in Belgium she can’t get all ingredients easily so she always comes up with clever ways to fix the absence of what is abundant in Korea.
The question how I can go about convincing people to subscribe to “Susie’s Keuken – 겐트처자” is one I struggled with. When the answer came to me I really don’t understand why that obvious answer did not come to me sooner. Susie’s food is so amazing, I needn’t waste my own words on them. I simply need to show you and the pictures will do the talking for me. So without any further ado here is my top 5 favourite Susie original creations!
Make sure to subscribe to her instagram account, Susie’s Keuken – 겐트처자, and let her know who send you to her in one of the many comments you will be forced to send due to so many delicious pictures.
