Learn to make Kimchi!

Located at the Natural History Museum

Join us for a special event to uncover the natural history of kimchi, Korea's national dish! 

In this hands-on workshop you will have the opportunity to make your own jar of kimchi, as we recreate the annual custom of “kimjang” in the Museum’s Edible Garden. Together we will explore how the Colombian exchange changed the nature of kimchi, how something so spicy and salty can be good for your stomach, and why Koreans bury their kimchi in the ground. Instructor Hae Jung Cho will also share her personal recipe for Poggi Kimchi made from whole napa cabbage.

Sign up today to make your own batch of this fermented Korean side dish!
