I had my last workshop of the year at Neighbor’s backyard last month. It was definitely one of most memorable workshop. I had the pleasure of teaching most enthusiastic and committed people eager to learn about art and culture of making kimchi. I’ve hosted few other kimchi workshops before but this was the first time we made whole Napa cabbage kimchi and Korean radish kimchi in its most traditional and classic form. We had a blast and here is a quick photo recap from that day. Don’t forget to check out the printable Kimjang Guidelines at the bottom of this post! Kimjang means special day dedicated to make large quantities of kimchi to preserve for long Winters in Korea. Kimjang was listed as UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2013.
Love this shelf with eclectic goodies from Neighbor shop and cabbages and radishes for the kimchi workshop.
I love the unintended Fall foliage happening in Neighbor’s backyard bar kitchen and pretty line up of Kimchi ingredients for the class.
Kimchi stuffing and applying layer by layer.
Seasoning the cube radishes. So easy!

We had another fun and successful kimchi workshop back in May! This was our second time hosting kimchi theme workshop and it’s been one of my favorite. The city of Walnut Creek Parks & Recreation asked me almost a year ago if I can host one for their city program. It was a great opportunity to meet and work with city and the community. Instead of documenting the event by photos, Sarah from Cultural Chromatics helped me to document by video. It’s so awkward for me to see myself speak in front of camera! Eek! All I can say is that Sarah did a fantastic job editing the video. Also, please note I’m planning to host another kimchi workshop during early winter (kimjang, kimchi-making season) so if you missed this one, I hope you can join us then!
