Kimchi Making

David and I learnt how to make traditional Korean kimchi. We went to Insadong, one of the better preserved areas of Seoul. The place was called 'Yoo's family.' It was a traditional Korean building and had many kimchi pots placed around it. David and I learnt to make kimchi with a Japanese couple. After we made our kimchi our mentors gave us green tea and kimchi pancakes. This was such a fun and unique experience!

The ingredients we used to make our Kimchi was, cabbage, radish, sugar, salt, oyster sauce, fermented prawns, spring onion, chili flakes, garlic, leek.
