The Magical World of Kimchi! @ QED

  • QED 27-16 23rd Avenue Long Island City, NY, 11105 United States (map)

Fermentation is one of the oldest food processing methods still used today. Scientifically known as zymology, it is the conversion of carbohydrates into alcohols, carbon dioxide, yeast, or bacteria. Kimchi is a fermented Korean dish made of vegetables with a variety of seasonings, traditionally stored underground in jars to keep cool during the summer months and unfrozen during the winter months. There are hundreds of varieties of kimchi using everything from the traditional napa cabbage to cauliflower to cucumber. In this course we will cover the basic science behind making kimchi, discuss why it’s good for you, and teach you how to make it yourself. If you are interested in Old World food preservation, gut health, or fermentation in general, this is the class for you!
