Saturday, February 23: An Exploration of Korean Dishes with Chef Sunisa, 7 – 9pm
$45 Per Person    (SOLD OUT)

Korean food is a defining element of their culture, which is directly related to Korea’s environment, the country’s location, its geography, and climate. Until the 20th century, Korea was a rural, farming society with a good deal of wild food gathering. Farmers worked hard to intensively cultivate the land. As a result, Korean food tends to be hearty, much more so than in neighboring Japan or China. Master popular Korean foods as part of your February Bucket List. Chef Sunisa will provide the precise instructions on what it takes to perfect Bulgogi, Korean BBQ, Bibimbap (a Korean rice bowl mix), along with a selection of vegetables as sides. Plus, you get to indulge in the rich and addicting flavors of Korean fare.
