In my (Korean) Kitchen – May 2015

“In My Kitchen” is a wonderful blog series by Celia of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial that provides glimpses into other bloggers kitchens. I’ve been creeping around looking at all the gorgeous kitchens for a few months and it’s really interesting to see what other people have in their kitchen and what they have been cooking. It’s a great way to be introduced to new blogs, new recipes and a great community. Thank you so much, Celia, for the opportunity! I hope you like this post and I can do another one next time. It was a lot of fun looking around my kitchen (in Korea) and seeing how to incorporate my bits and bobs.

In my kitchen are these handmade plates that my school gave me. I’ve been using them the last couple of blog posts. Originally, I wasn’t going to keep them when I moved home but I’ve grown incredibly attached to them, so now I’m not so sure that they won’t sneak into my suitcase!


In my kitchen, is this wonderful focaccia bread that I picked up in Seoul yesterday. My friends and I went to the restaurant that had a bakery attached to it. All the breads were amazing and it took  a lot of willpower to not buy everything in sight!


During the week, I went to Costco with one of my friends and I picked up some avocados. I only have one remaining and it’s earmarked for some guacamole I am making for lunch.


Korea is all about the cuteness from couple shirts to cute socks to stationery covered in gorgeous patterns.  In my kitchen, I have these adorable snail magnets I bought my first year in Korea at Art Box.


And that’s my kitchen. Please, make sure you check out the rest of the fantastic blogs in this series.

Hello, my name is Maggie and I love to cook. I hail from Dublin, Ireland, where I currently live. This blog, however, began it's life in South Korea where I taught for a little over 3 years. Welcome to Spoon in a Saucepan.

  2. Oh those snail and ladybird magnets are completely adorable! How wonderful that you can buy such great bread in Korea – I’ve not had great luck with bread in Asia in general. And Costco! They really are all over the world! 🙂 Thanks for playing Maggie!

    • Yes, it’s such hit and miss here in Korea. I’m glad I’ve found a few places that have good bread. There is a French area in Seoul that I want to get to at least once before I leave! Maybe in time for July’s In my Kitchen! Thanks, Celia!

  3. Lovely meeting you Maggie, it’s great to see some exciting thing in your Korean kitchen – I love having a look at what everyone else has in their kitchens from all over the world! How good is a perfectly ripe avocado – yumm! Welcome to #IMK, see you next month

    • Ripe avocado is the best. Me too, it’s a great way to meet other people. I still need to get around everyone’s post but I am already looking forward to next month’s #IMK.

  4. Hi Maggie,
    Thanks for stopping by my kitchen. Those little snail magnets are so cute. I was also surprised that here is Costco in Korea.

    • They do indeed! Except for my pizza magnets (when I get 9 I get a free pizza) they are my only magnets! Yes, I don’t know how I would have survived without it! Cheese is my favourite thing to buy from Costco.

  5. Dear Maggie, welcome to IMK! What a delightful look at your kitchen… your life… YOU! I love those “checkerboard” plates and can definitely see why you want to keep them (or sneak them into your suitcase), as well your affinity for bread… avocados… and refrigerator magnets. Yes ma’am! 🙂

    • Thank you, Kim! One of my friends, from the school who gave me the plates, thinks it’s adorable that I want to keep them! Thanks for peeking in my kitchen!

  6. What a great post that brightened my day Maggie! Love the handmade plates and can almost smell your focaccia bread from here!
    I am glad we are all connected through Celia’s IMK view each month!

    • Hi Joanne, thank you for your kind words. That focaccia bread was the bomb! I HAVE to go back to that bakery. I ate all of it in less than a day! Me too, what a great idea Celia had to host this series. It’s outstanding getting peeks into all the kitchens.
