What you'll do

Is it ambitious to think you can learn centuries' old cuisine in less than 2 hours (we need the rest of time to eat)? Not really, if you know the fundamentals! Japanese and Korean households tend to be very busy. I'll show you the shortcuts in making nutritious meals for your average working family. My goal is to help you make J/K recipes at home, even if you live in the middle of nowhere (e.g. Missouri or South Austin). After this experience, you should be able to follow 98% of the savory J/K recipes in cookbooks, YouTube videos, and food blogs! Besides the soup, all of your hard work will be arranged by you neatly into a bento / dosirak lunch box. Schedule 1. Appetizers provided + overview of ingredients 2. Cook! 3. Dinner and takeaway dessert ***Special gift at end *Recipes will be given after the event via a follow-up email. *Vegan/vegetarian options are available. Please let me know about any dietary restrictions in advan

Holly

I’m an Austin native who grew up in a mixed Korean / Japanese household. I have been cooking most of these recipes for over 15 years, or since I have started helping in the kitchen. Receiving bentos when I was a child made me very happy; I hope to reciprocate the hospitality I’ve been given from my family and friends.
