Kimchi Harvest Cooking Demo

April 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm



Date: Friday, April 5th
Time: 6:00 – 8:00pm
Location: Hunger Intervention Program
3841 NE 123rd St
Seattle, WA 98125


The evening will begin with drinks (beer, wine, soju, and N/A options), appetizers (featuring KFC-style fried mushrooms with gochujang sauce, assorted small snacks, and tteokbokki), and a time to get acquainted with the group. After that, we will split into groups of 2 or 4 and start the cooking demonstration portion of the event. The demo will begin with a pantry tasting. After this, the prep work will begin with knife skills and mise en place. Each station will have its own burner and Dutch oven or saute pan. The Kimchi JJigae will be prepared first. Then, other banchan demos will be completed while the Kimchi JJigae boils down. After that, the meal will be completed, and people can take a short break while the pork belly is finished in the kitchen. Then…..the feast begins!

Senior Meals Head Chef David Salerno

Originally from the Northeast, David (he/him) has been in Seattle since 2016. He studied classic culinary arts at the French Culinary Institute in NYC and most recently worked as a culinary instructor and resident chef at Sur La Table. He can completely nerd out over culinary anthropology and talk about food and food science for hours with anyone willing to listen. When not in the kitchen, you can find him playing hockey or running in different neighborhoods of Seattle.

My Journey to Korean Food

I was adopted from Korea, raised in New Jersey in an American Italian household, and trained at the French Culinary Institute. This last year, I returned to Seoul 37 years later and found myself learning so much. I invite you to come and cook with me, learn with me, and be part of a Korean communal meal.
