I was so happy to be back at Neighbor‘s backyard last month to host workshop/pop-up event. Neighbor store has been undergoing some renovations in their backyard to accommodate hosting events. In addition to most adored shed, they have built a bar kitchen! It’s perfect for doing cooking demos, to serve drinks and bites. Workshop was all about basic pantry and banchan. I’m thinking this should have been the first part in the year of ‘Back-to-Basic’ series but even with some shuffling of order, I’m very glad I was able to share this content. See more highlights from this event below.
We also hosted two other food vendors to join us for pop-up and walk-ins. CAN CAN CLEANSE and SUNBUD BAKERY brought some samples for us to try and chat with us little bit about juice cleanse and cookies made with buckwheat! It’s so awesome to see other mom entrepreneurs pursuing their passion and pave their way. I could only hope I follow their foot steps. Having to connect with them and be there made it really special. Thanks.
I prepared to serve all vegetarian/pescatarian menu for out little picnic table. We had rice balls with kimchi and crispy seaweed toppings, shrimp salad with mustard dressing, one sauce banchan 3-ways, vegetable skewers and spicy tangy cucumber pickles.
As you can see, I had the best group of people (so attentive!). I did a quick demo on making your own savory & sweet sauce. I used this sauce almost on a daily basis and couldn’t wait to share this idea. Thanks everyone for coming and helping out. Hope I can be back at the Neighbor’s backyard soon!
