Editors Review

Some of the comfort foods we crave when the weather starts to cool require a lot of time and effort to get to the table but this Korean style spicy seafood and noodle stew is an easy one and is sure to warm the cockles (and mussels!) of your heart. It is a great culinary creation. This soup has a long list of ingredients but is an otherwise effortless entrée and is sure to receive rave reviews when served on the dinner table!
