Korean Cooking Class

Posted on October 29, 2011 in the Cooking Classes, Local Happenings, Updates category by Dennis Chan.

My only experience with travel to Korea has been nothing more than a layover in Seoul on my way to Hong Kong.  Although I could never call myself an expert on Korean cooking, I have had some incredible dining experiences that allow me confidently talk about this country’s wonderful food.  In preparation for today’s cooking class, the Blue Bamboo staff and I went  to several Korean restaurants in our area, just to make sure we had our authentic flavors down pat.  Over a lifetime of visiting Korean restaurants and tasting Korean foods, I never felt a connection as strongly as I did when I was cooking the food that we made today.

In today’s class, we made a sweet-potato noodle stir-fry called Jap Chae,

sweet and savory marinated and grilled Shortribs called Kalbi

sesame-seaweed sushi called Kim Bap

pork and beef pan-fried dumplings called Mandu

A cocktail made with Soju and Seju, Korea’s answer to vodka

and we completed the morning with red bean pancakes called Pulbbang.

These foods are addictive, and we will be weaving some of them onto our menu in coming months.  I’m sure that Korean flavors will be next big culinary thing! Well, at least for Blue Bamboo it will be.
