This fall, join us for “Cooking with Chef Hooni Kim: Korean Jang & Fermentation” to explore the complexities and depth of Korean jang, soy fermented ingredient components that take a key role in Korean cuisine for over a thousand years. So much more than a condiment or an ingredient, jang takes center stage as it takes the technique of fermentation to a new level as they are used in all types of Korean dishes both traditional and with modern twists. Chef Kim will be using the three primary jang of Korean cuisine: doenjang, gochujang, and ganjang over the two workshops.
