Chef Young Lee offers Reporter Emily Friedman a taste of cabbage kimchi.

Kimchi is perhaps Korea's most famous and versatile food. This spicy dish -- most commonly made with cabbage -- is such an important part of the nation's culture that many Koreans, whether in Seoul or here in Washington -- reserve specific refrigerators just for kimchi. Emily Friedman meets with a local chef at D.C.'s Korean Cultural Center to learn the secret behind making this preserved delicacy.
