Make Your Own Kimchi Party
Taught by Jonathan Soma
Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He co-founded the Brainery, is the sciencey half of Masters of Social Gastronomy, has more hobbies than can dance on the head of a pin, and loves Waffle House about eighteen times more than you.

Once upon a time Brooklyn Based mentioned kimchi parties, big hangouts where old Korean ladies get together and make kimchi together. Blinded with septuagenarian jealousy, we decided we were going to copycat that to the millionth degree in celebration of our brand new space.
So! Come hang out in our new space and learn how to put together your very own kimchi. We'll have cabbage, cucumbers, radish, and a handful of other vegetables for you to base your culinary creation around. There'll be plenty of chili powder for the hotheads and instructions on how to make white kimchi (hint: not spicy) for the more gentle souls. Super sour, slightly sweet, we'll have you covered. I have a kimchi-only, 100% Korean cookbook that is full of outer-space looking creations that I'll even translate for the occasion.
Oh but that's not all! Plain pickled cabbage can only go so far, so we'll be sure you know the story with things like kimchi stew and kimchi pancakes. Vegetarian versions are totally available and totally delicious, too. This is going to be the best hangout you have ever experienced, I promise.
You just need to bring a container to tote your kimchi home in - something glass is probably best, but you can buy it in plastic bags at Han Ah Reum in Koreatown, so we're not making any demands.
We're operating this drop-in style, so feel free to come anytime between 2 - 7pm. While you don't have to register to show up, I'd recommend it to make sure we have enough ingredients for you. Register below to CLAIM YOUR CABBAGE and we'll see you there!
