Kimchee – its gastronomic charms, manifold and deep, is born from the marriage of hakusai (Chinese cabbage), salt, chili peppers, a host of other ingredients, human hands to officiate the ceremony and the magic of fermentation. Having originated in ancient Korea, kimchee has won the validation of time in that country and its pungent, spicy flavor punch now finds fans throughout the world. What’s behind the perennial and growing international popularity of this pickled cabbage? We’ll show you in our class. Join in the camaraderie of learning how to elevate a humble vegetable to kimchee greatness and get some tips on how to use this gift from the Land of the Morning Calm as an ingredient. The class will start one hour later than usual – at 1:00PM – and will include a light meal after the kimchee-making. Come and join us!
That much of the kimchee consumed nowadays is store-bought casts a veil of commercial mystery around how it comes to be, but we’ll lift that veil and show you how to make kimchee at home and even use it as an ingredient.

Cancellation Policy: By the way, if you make a reservation, but later find that you cannot attend, please let us know as early as possible.
＃Please note that payment of the participation fee will still be expected for a cancellation after the deadline and in the case of a simple failure to attend after making a reservation. Bank transfer details will be provided. A person who reserves a class spot, but then fails to attend, without notifying Kitchen Nippon, may be blocked from further participation. We have decided to implement this rule because we purchase materials for each class and late cancellations and no-shows result in wastage and make it difficult to hold the class fee down.
