Kimjang 2019: Photos
We hosted our first ever Fall Benefit with a special Kimjang led by Hyosun Ro, creator of food blog Korean Bapsang. Who knew how long the process of making traditional kimchi really takes? Hyosun took us through the 2-day process with her expert, detailed instructions. With the 60 heads of cabbages our team prepared the day before, our guests transformed them all into kimchi – communal style – and experienced the true spirit of kimjang which brings people together! Special thank you to Hyosun Ro, Windrose Restaurant NYC, West 32 Soju, and our volunteers for a successful night! Photos: Alan Tan www.alan-tan.com
Join us for a special night of preserving the fading traditional art of kimchi-making with Hyosun Ro of Korean Bapsang as we learn from her how to make traditional pogi kimchi at Windrose Restaurant NYC. This hands-on community building culinary experience will teach you how to make kimchi from scratch that you will take home while enjoying stories of the kimjang tradition over food and drinks.
