On Wednesday November 8th, at a Lentil as Anything pop-up in Preston, you can learn how to make delicious kimchi. And if that's not enough Lentil As Anything is bringing you more kimchi than you can handle, by making a meal of it!
This is back by popular demand, because the first workshop sold out. So if you're interested in doing this, I'd suggest booking in early, to avoid disappointment.
The evening will start with a kimchi making workshop, where you will learn how to make your own delicious kimchi, which is a tasty fermented Korean side dish. It is a hands-on workshop, so you will be involved in the making of it. This will be followed by a 5 course kimchi themed dinner for all participants, which will give you an interesting taster of kimchi. This dish is becoming increasingly popular, and while I'm told there are health benefits, it really is delicious, which is good enough reason for me.
The menu for this Kimchi themed evening is: • Kimchi soup • Kimchi pancake • Kimchi & shiitake mandu (dumplings) • Trio of Kimchi's & Rice Assorted Korean vegetable side dishes • Sesame Ice-cream
What will you get from this workshop? • Hands on knowledge of how to make Kimchi • A jar of delicious Kimchi to take home • Notes on how to make basic Kimchi as well as variations • A delicious Kimchi themed meal • All the green tea you can drink • Knowledge & recipes for what you can make with Kimchi
And if that's not enough, you'll also get a glorious feeling inside knowing that you're supporting Lentil as Anything and all the good work they do.
Lentil As Anything's core is not-for-profit vegetarian restaurants. They operate with a social and environmental conscious. They aim to provide a wholesome and nutritious meal where money is not a concern and they give people the opportunity to volunteer in the restaurant, which can help give them the skills to re-enter the workplace.
They also liaise directly with producers and sellers of fresh food to ensure that as much of their food waste can be rescued and diverted for use in Lentil As Anything's kitchens. Which not only keeps operational costs down, but more importantly helps to reduce the amount of food waste that unnecessarily ends up in landfill. Knowing this about them, makes me smile.
This event is being hosted by qualified chef & kimchi enthusiast Chase White, with the love & support of fashion icon & kimchi extraordinaire Joel Joseph James. They have run several kimchi workshops and are looking forward to answering any fermenting questions that you want to throw their way. They really want to share the knowledge so everyone can enjoy kimchi.
Kimchi Mania 2.0 is being held at Hey Prestó, 288 High Street Preston on Wednesday November 8th 6-9:30 pm. This cost is Adult: $50 Concession: $30. You can book your tickets to Kimchi Mania 2.0 here.
All profit from this event goes towards supporting Lentil as Anything. This evening has a set cost (unlike their menu), but if you are a regular volunteer at Lentil as Anything, you can contact them regarding a discount.
It will be a fun and enjoyable night for anyone who enjoys kimchi!
