Korean Kitchen class #2 Life

Oh well, it was another fun class last Saturday! The menu was Bulgogi, Japchae and Miyeok guk(Shirley's special request). Every ingredients were divided into 3 portions. Lots of chopping has started again. 

또 한번의 즐거운 토요일 오전시간을 보내고 왔어요! 메뉴요? 불고기, 잡채 그리고 미역국입니다(Shirley의 특별요청 메뉴). 모든 재료를 삼등분 하구요, 썰고 다지고 계량하고..... 바삐 움직였지요.

Voila! Everything was done and we were ready to taste them! 

짠! 모든 음식이 다 되었어요. 이제 시식을 할 차례지요!

I hope all these ladies enjoyed the cooking, tasting and  talking about Korean food.  Looking forward to see all again in June, Korean Kitchen session # 2! Menu? I already planned them but always open for special requests!

다들 지난 두 토요일을 즐겁게 보냈기를 바라며 6월에 다시 만나 두번째 세션을 또 함께 하기를 바래요. 메뉴요? 벌써 다 정해 놨지만 특별요청이 들어오면 언제라도 반영합니다!

Here are recipes that you can make your own Korean food for tonight!
