We are excited to join forces with Kimchi queen extraordinaire, Kala Sung, who will join us for lunch and dinner service on July 13th. Expect summer food - Ssambap style!
Ssambap literally means wrapped rice. For Koreans, this is country style food. Pure summer in a leaf. Just picked from the farm, fresh lettuce or lightly steamed kale will be used to wrap the filling of steamed grains, green leafy vegetables and a variety of dipping sauces known as ssamjang, grilled fish or seafood, Korean style marinade, grilled veggies, mushrooms and Kala's kimchi.
Kala holds a M.A. in Food Studies from NYU and is currently traveling the world with her culinary workshop – Kala’s Kimchi. Kala adapts the traditional Kimchi techniques to local, seasonal produce and focus is on exploring food preservation that involves the process of fermentation. Korean kimchi is a lacto-fermented food that is both popular and super healthy.
