K-Food Cooking Series

July 8, 2023 - July 22, 2023


We’re bringing back our Korean cooking workshops in the month of July with the talented chef Ashley Hwang. Last year, Ashey visited KCI all the way from Korea to teach us how to make kimchi. This year, she’ll be back again to show us how to create other mouthwatering Korean dishes.

There will be six total workshops in this series, each priced at $90. Each day will follow a different theme, showcasing various dishes. Participants who attend the workshops for all three days will receive a certificate upon completion. Note: Participants only need to attend one session each day, for all three days, to receive the certificate. Participants will also have the chance to sign up for a FREE tasting event to wrap up the series.
