Product Details

In this introductory class, we'll cover key dishes that help you gain an understanding of the flavours and techniques that make Korean food tick. You'll learn how to make kimchi from scratch – because no household should be without this healthy, piquant, versatile ingredient, which adds pizazz to anything from sandwiches to mac n' cheese. You'll also make bibimbap, the warm and colourful rice dish you can make a million different ways (once you know the basics) and mandu (Korean-style dumplings). There's a lot of chopping involved, so you'll leave class with sharper knife skills and a deep understanding of what makes Korean food so unique.

Why we love it

'This class gave me the confidence to cook more Korean recipes at home. I love the inclusion of mandu, as they freeze beautifully and regularly save dinner when my fridge is sparse.'
