Sharing is giving. This autumn we are back with the heart of Korean tradition and cuisine, Kimjang, which is the traditional and communal process of preparing, making, and sharing kimchi. For those who aren’t familiar, kimchi is spicy preserved vegetables that is fermented with various spices and seafood. Traditionally, this is done in preparation for the winter periods.

This year, we are honoured to have Professor Suin Kim to lead the kimchi making sessions on the day. Professor Suin Kim is a professor at the Korean Culinary Department and the Head of Royal Kochujang Group at Jeonju University.

All profits made from the ticket sales and the coffee morning will be going to a selected charity, the Korean Saturday School, to support its Korean classes during winter break.

    1. Hi there Yvonne
      No I don’t have a mailing list I’m afraid. I had real problems with Mailchimp when I was trying to set up tailored mailing lists for different post types and gave up with them. I haven’t yet had time to explore other alternatives.
