Cook Korean Cuisine: Kimchi, Bibimbap & Mandu

Learn about the foundations of Korean cooking in this skill and technique-based cooking class that covers the basics (and all the ways you can vary them).

In this introductory class, you’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.

  • Learn the foundations of Korean cuisine
  • Learn how to make kimchi (a fermented Korean dish)
  • Learn how to make bibimbap (a colourful rice dish)
  • Learn how to make mandu (Korean-style dumplings)
