How to Make Kimchi


Please contact us for kimchi making workshops


It’s spicy! It’s stinky! It’s spectacular!
Rated one of the world’s healthiest foods by Health magazine in 2008. Kimchi’s probiotic bacteria (lactobacilli) are good for both your gastrointestinal and immune systems – and adds a tasty kick to a variety of meals. Led by www.culinaryadventures.co founder Gloria Chang who learned how to make kimchi from her Korean mother, this hands-on workshop will teach you how to make your own Baechu Kimchi (napa cabbage) to take home and ferment at home, and a fresh Kimchi salad you’ll get to taste in class.


No experience necessary! Limited to 15 participants.



What people say about this workshop...

“Excellent instruction, it was great to have the sampling, followed by the demo before preparing the food ourselves.”


“It was informative, fun, and tasty and well organized. It was wonderful that your mom came!”


“It was a great! Very fun and informative.”


“The fact that this was a traditional lesson from mother and daughter was what made this so special. It’s one thing to take a class from an “enthusiast”, but it’s another to learn from the “real deal” – Thank you for coming and sharing your wisdom Joyce and thank you to Gloria for knowing how important it is to share your culture and putting it into action!
I have done many ferments, sauerkraut etc., but kimchi is a whole other animal and I knew it was something that you need to learn the authentic way – this class definitely did that with ease and I’m so excited to go home and make and eat my own.”


“It was really fun. I had a great time.”
