We will participate this Saturday, February 20th in this great Delectable Sea Vegetable cooking class.
Chef Shin, Founder of Banchan Story will be teaching us about various types of delicious, healthy sea vegetables full of minerals and teaching how to prepare them as a part of a daily meal through easy and simple steps. After all, it is possible to cook a full course meal from salad to dessert with a Korean flare to it! Cool right?
How this all started? Shin explains:
"I decided to start my own Korean cooking class program because I wanted to share the Korean food culture that has such a long, dynamic history with dishes using diverse, healthy ingredients.
In fact, Korean home meals are largely based on plethora of vegetables - both from the land and the sea, although it has gained popularity through Korean BBQ in recent years. These are the dishes I still like eating on a day-to-day basis, and what I'd like to share with more people through my cooking classes in the future.
I love sharing not only the ingredients and cooking techniques of Korean food, but also the stories related to each and every dish. It may be an anecdote from my family, a special meaning in Korean culture, or a significance in Korean history.
Hosting small, interactive, hands-on cooking classes gives me a chance to share these stories and cooking in person, and feed off from each other's enthusiasm."
