Cooking Workshop - Bibim Rice & Summer Soup

11:00 Corner Gallery Add this event to a calendar application

Bi-bim-bab, or "mixed rice," is a very popular, traditional Korean dish that combines several different ingredients, each marinated separately, with plain white rice. When you are served, you add a bit of hot sauce and a few drops of sesame oil to taste, then mix everything together.  You quickly find that the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts!

The beauty of the dish is that it varies according to the available local ingredients, the time of year, and the cook's personal preferences. So, for example, bi-bim-bab in a mountainous area might contain fiddlehead ferns and taro; near the seashore, it might include seafood; and in east Tennessee, it often contains carrots, spinach, and broccoli stems. It can include meat, eggs, or fish products, or can be entirely vegan.

A popular current variation, tolsit bi-bim-bab, presents the dish in a sizzling stone pot. This is typically available in Korean restaurants in large metropolitan areas, and is quite spectacular.

Summer soup is a very simple, refreshing cold soup that features the tang of vinegar and shredded cucumbers. It is one of the most cooling dishes imaginable!
