Dolsot bibimbap is a Korean rice dish, served in a searingly hot stone bowl – the ‘dolsot’. The dolsot bowl should be slowly brought up to heat in an oven, while the sticky, sushi rice is cooking on the hob. To make bibimbap, sesame oil is heated inside the dolsot bowl, and then the cooked rice is heaped in – so that it starts frying in the sesame oil. Traditional bibimbap is then topped with vegetables, a raw egg yolk and gochujang chilli paste. It’s stirred through at the table – so the egg yolk and rice cook in the heat from the stone dish, and the vegetables stay piping hot.
