Briarpatch Co-op:Cooking Classes
with Kayla Wexelberg
The word bibimbap literally means “mixed rice.” It’s traditionally served in Korea as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste) and soy sauce ordoenjang, a fermented soybean paste. A raw or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. The hot dish is stirred together thoroughly just before eating. In 2011, bimbimbap ranked 40th on a CNN Travel poll of, “The World’s 50 Most Delicious Foods.” We will also make the classic Korean sides of kimchee, pickled daikon and carrots, sesame broccoli, and fresh sprouts. Gluten-free, vegan options.
