Gochujang is the most popular pantry staple in Korea – and Mother In Law’s is my go-to for dips (with carrots is my favorite). I also use it to spice up soups, sauces or on sandwiches. My favorite is the sesame but I love them all. As you can see, Mother In Law’s has pride of place in my refrigerator!!
I met the founder, Lauryn Chun, through my friend Jenn OK at a party at Arris Lofts (the hub of my network clearly!). Her products are available at many Whole Foods and other specialty retailers. Lauryn’s office is in Gowanus (near the Brooklyn Whole Foods which was one of her first big clients). The original recipes were inspired by her mom’s restaurant, Jang Mo Gip [translates into mother-in-law’s house], founded in 1989 in Garden Grove, California.
CANNOT RECOMMEND THESE PRODUCTS HIGHLY ENOUGH!!!
