About Me

Unforgettable Italian dinner with homemade food and favorite people


Hello! Welcome to Bellacorea. Bellacorea means “Beautiful Korea” in Italian. I am from South Korea and currently living in Finland. I do love food, of course cooking (particularly Korean and Italian), baking, eating, reading cookbooks, and trying new ingredients. No wonder! Food is a big part of my life.

I believe that a good food does not always mean delicious and fancy. It has to be from the bottom of one’s heart.

I started this blog to share my food journey with family, friends and you.

Thank you

Italian – let me try ๐Ÿ˜‰

English welcome!

Korean more welcome!

  6. “Bella”, thanks for stopping by MY blog – it’s what brought me to YOURS! I’m a foodie at heart, and a closet food-photographer (if quick shots at the table with my cellphone count, lol). The food you cook looks amazing! And I love what you said: I believe that a good food does not always mean delicious and fancy. It has to be from the bottom of oneโ€™s heart. — That is so very true!

    I look forward to following you.

    • I’m so happy because it seems like I just found one more friend who understands my food philosophy deeply ๐Ÿ˜‰ As you see, I’m a foodie with my all heart and trying to figure out how I can make a better life with good food and good people. This blog helps me a lot because I can go so many different worlds, and meet various people! It’s so fun! I appreciate your nice words. It encouraged me a lot!

    • Ciao! Piacere! Anche a me piace la cucina italiana.;-)

      I’m learning Italian now. It is too slow though! It’s my big pleasure to learn Italian culture incuding food, wine, language, and people! I hope you will come back soon again!

    • Thank you for liking my photos! and My camera is Sony nex-c3. It is not fancy, DSLR.. but works pretty well.. I’m still studying photograhy myself with books, websites, from people.. so I can’t tell you which one is good or not.. unfortunately ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hope I could help you!!

    • sometimes I feel so guilty.. because I can’t live without cheese, pasta,bread….so on.. but not Korean food.. haha My Italian friends say Korean gov will get rid of my Korean citizenship! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you for dropping by btw!

  14. Thanks so much for dropping by my blog and for the “like.”. I’m going to definitely spend some time here and would love to hear more (and hopefully attempt some recipes soon) on Korean cooking. And, your photos are just beautiful!

  15. What a lovely blog! Thank you for liking my post. I’ve just started blogging and it’s not easy at all to be a good blogger. I might need to learn from you. Looking forward to reading your next post ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Thanks! I’ve just started this blog since January so I’m still figuring out how to do things as you are doing!! I really love your idea to have Korean food with wine.. I’ve had a semi dry red wine with roasted porkbelly(์‚ผ๊ฒน์‚ด), a dry white wine with Korean sushi(๊น€๋ฐฅ), and Kimchi pancake as well! I’m not an expert of wine as you are but I would say, they were pretty wonderful harmonies!

    • Thank you for stopping by! I enjoyed your post very much! It is always interesting how foreigners in Korea think about my country and I’m so glad you like Korean, Italian food both. More recipes are coming up! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • My mom’s from South Korea so I grew up in America with a lot of her home cooking :] Bulgogi has always been my favorite Korean food, but kimchii jigae is also very good, much spicier in Korea than in America. I’m looking forward to making japchae for the first time at home, and perhaps trying some of your recipes too (especially the spinach).

      • I shouldn’t have said “my country” ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s our country, right? hahaha! Jabche is also my honey’s favorite,too. It is not very difficult dish than you think! Let’s try it and share a result with me! It will be fun.

Please cheer me up! Thank you!
