Celebrity food columnist Mark Bittman of The New York Times loves kimchi, mentioning the condiment several times on his food blog.

And it’s not just kimchi. In an e-mail interview with the JoongAng Ilbo, Bittman said he has even tried his hand at Korean hot pot, barbecue and side dishes.

This is not a recent infatuation. This is a long-standing relationship. As far back as 1996, Bittman wrote about Korean food in lofty terms.

Go here to the Joonang Ilbo for the rest.
