First kimchi, now sauerkraut?
First kimchi was said to be the nature's vaccine against the bird flu, but now the Telegraph reports that sauerkraut might have the same magic healing powers. I haven't seen too much sauerkraut for sale on Seoul store shelves, but it would probably be a hot seller since "kimchi panic" continues unabated here in the local press. I've noticed lately that the story seems to have has caught on internationally too with stories by Reuters, the Financial Times, and San Diego Union-Tribune. Even the CBC did an item on the "kimchi crisis".
