Event Overview

Join us for our Taste Test Series!

Class topic: Kimchi 101

Put a little spice in your life by learning how to make this beloved Korean side dish! Join us for this hands-on class, as we learn about the history and importance of kimchi in Korean culture.

We will learn about the many uses of kimchi, and also taste it in different stages from fresh to fermented. Then each attendee will make a classic kimchi with napa cabbage to take home. Instructor Andy Lim will also demonstrate how to make a Kimchi Pork Stew, which we’ll eat at the end of class, so come hungry!

This class is BYOB.
