Taste of Korea: Korean cuisine, full of wisdom and nature

Join us as we welcome back the Korean Spirit and Culture Promotion Project for another exciting program on Korean history and culture!  This program consists of a cooking demonstration followed by a home-cooked meal served on traditional Korean bronzeware called Bangjja.  Learn about the health benefits of fermented foods, which 70% of Korean foods are, and the ancient form of Bangjja, which uses a unique ratio of copper (78%) and tin (22%) that defies modern engineering standards, and can counteract infections and fight harmful bacteria.  A short film on Korean culture will follow.  

Registration required and limited to 30.
