Korean food demo @ New York City Vegetarian Food Festival
Korean food in the U.S. is best known for its sizzling BBQ meat dishes, but the versatility of Korean cuisine extends to the holistic view of the universe and the balance of yin and yang, in addition to its long history of Buddhism as its national religion. Today, it is reflected in healthful, flavorful dishes with an extensive use of seasonal, fresh vegetables combined with pickled and fermented ones for deeper flavoring. Korean culinary instructor and writer Shin Kim (www.shinshine.com) will go over the staple ingredients and basic condiments of Korean cuisine and create a satisfying Korean dish that will tingle your taste buds. Also learn helpful tips to apply Korean flavors in your daily repertoire!
