MY FIRST KIMCHI STORY BOOK
6 September / 10.00am – 12.00pm / The Arts House
Kimchi is one of the Korea’s representative food which is becoming more popular around the world nowadays. In addition, in December 2013 the Korean traditions of making and sharing kimchi were included in the UNESCO Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Participants can learn the Kimchi recipe and the philosophy of Kimchi-making through the Kimchi story created by Seung Ah Kim.
Book Making with hand-made Korean paper will be a very special experience and a memorable souvenir even though participants don’t get to visit Korea.
