Korean Banquet

Presented by The Cooking School at the Essential Ingredient Surry Hills
About the class

Korean Food is having its moment as one of the biggest Asian food trends of the past few years and looks to be carving out a permanent place in Australia’s eclectic cuisine.

This class is hands-on where the group will work towards creating a fabulous Korean Banquet. You will make a delicious Korean fried chicken, 2 classic Korean barbecue dishes (Bulgogi and Samyeopsai) and all the pickled vegetables and sauces you will need to complete the full dining experience.

The course will end with a sit-down meal of the feast you have created and an Icy cold Korean Pale Lager (or wine if you prefer!)
