Banchan Workshop #12 Soup & Stew

10 09 17

I’m beginning to feel the full swing of Fall in the air. My favorite season. In Korean culture, we call this season, a season of reading (독서의 계절). Have you heard of this? Maybe because the weather is just perfect to snuggle into warm blanket, a cup of tea in your hand. Are you a reader? I’m not. I’m just not a avid reader. I usually have to be mesmerized by its first chapter in order to finish the entire book. Since it’s a season of reading, I feel inspired to read more. Do you have good recommendation for me?

Fall is also a season for soups & stews. I love the feeling of crisp air and chilly mornings and nights. You can make comfy creamy soup, brothy noodle soup, hearty vegetable soup. They all sound good to me. I recently hosted another workshop around the theme of Korean soup & stews (jjigae). We focused on learning how to make a simple healing bean sprouts soup (recipe) and super tasty gochujang stew (recipe). Here is a quick photo recap from that day. I’m loving the darker moody photos here.
