Everything you wanted to ask about kimchi but were afraid to ask!

The first cooking workshop to take in the new kitchen of the MadLab is about Kimchi. This pungent pickle is the lifeblood of Korean cuisine, and the key to understanding Korea and Koreans.

Although it never takes centre place, it is a constant on the table, versatile, and made from a variety of ingredients. Kimchi types also vary from region to region, and this workshop will make kimchi that is unique to Manchester.

This is a hands-on course where you will get to see and make kimchi yourself. Ingredients are sourced from local shops, so it can be replicated easily later at home.

This intensive day will take you through the history and nutrition of the food while you learn to make 3 different types of kimchi.
The course will finish with a traditional post-kimchi making Korean lunch with added taster menu and selection of traditional ban-chan (small side dishes that accompany most Korean meals).

There are more than a hundred varieties of kimchi, made from everything from cabbages to cucumbers to aubergines. This workshop will focus on the three most enjoyable kimchi types:  Chinese Leaf(Baechu Kimchi- 배추김치) , Mooli Kimchi(Kak dugi-깍두기), and Cucumber (ohei sobaeki-오이소배기)

Please Bring…
