Join KACAF for an afternoon discussing and seeing demonstrations of Korean cuisine! Participants will receive pre-packaged Korean snacks.

Gimbap is a Korean dish made from cooked rice, vegetables, fish, and meat rolled in gim (dried sheets of seaweed) and served in bite-sized slices. The dish is often part of a packed meal, or dosirak (lunch box), to be eaten at picnics and outdoor events, and can serve as a light lunch along with other side dishes. It is a popular takeaway food in South Korea and abroad and is known as a convenient food because of its portability.

In this workshop, we will demonstrate various versions of gimbap including classic gimbap, yubuchobap (fried Tofu pocket rice), etc and will present dosirak with other Korean dishes. After the demonstration, we will try Korean cuisine including pre-prepared gimbap.
