Kimchi Making and Hanbok experience
Have you ever wondered what exactly is Kimchi (김치) ?
Kimchi is one of the staple food in most Korean families. In fact, many Koreans find a meal hard to eat without Kimchi!
Kimchi is raw vegetables that become naturally fermented in puree of fruits, garlic, ginger and chili powder.
All of the elements in Kimchi are beneficial for our body.
Many Koreans make their own Kimchi and it’s actually not hard to make it! I joined an activity that allows me to learn how to make Kimchi!
The teacher is very patient and tells us exactly how to make the kimchi well seasoned. Even though our batch of kimchi is very small, we can already smell the good taste of it!
Kimchi is like wine and cheese; the older it gets, the deeper its taste develops. Kimchi preserves nutrients, prebiotics that are already in fresh vegetables while it self-generates probiotics. After fermenting a day or two in room temperature you need to keep it cold for that perfect Kimchi taste.
After the Kimchi making we are able to also dress in traditional Korean traditional dress (HANBOK) and take some nice photos !
