The first appearance of “Jang”, in written script, dates back to 1443. It is a special blend of the imperial elements – fire (bitter), water (salty), wood (sour), earth (sweet), and metal (spicy); “Jang” is foundation of Korean culture. As artisanal purists, The Kocina balances these elements into bona fide perfection. Our pure blends have distinguishable layering of flavours inviting your tastes buds to do a happy dance.
Koreans are best known for their perfected fermentation process. This rich paste is the foundation of all Korean cuisine. Its uses are limited only by your imagination. Our Premium Kochujang is a unique blend of peppers and spices combining flavours of sweet, spicy and salty. Due to the intricacy of production of this “jang”, we yield only a few bottles a year.
