K-drama Menu Itaewon Class in Franklin

Do you love K-dramas? Itaewon Class is a popular K-drama on Netflix. A boy’s father is tragically killed in a reckless motor accident by a thoughtless rich classmate. The classmate’s father shields the kid, so justice isn’t served. The boy vows to avenge his father by taking down his classmate’s food conglomerate. The boy has a gift for cooking and opens a pub. We will make kimchi fried rice and Soondubu jjigae or Soft Tofu stew, which appear in the show. Have fun watching Itaewon Class before this cooking class begins! Please notify the instructor at email@example.com about allergies and dietary restrictions whether you eat GF or halal.

Moleta will provide to each student a sharpened knife and cutting board during the class, plus a bamboo plate for each student to be able to take their creation home with them.

Hands-on Steak Class in Franklin
When: Thursday, Dec. 1, 2022; 6:30-8:45 pm
Learn a foolproof way to cook steaks using the "reverse sear" method. Reverse searing means you cook the steak in the oven first and then sear the outside. The steak will be pink from the center all the way to the edge just like a steak that comes out of a fine dining restaurant. Students will cook their own steak, as well as a red wine mushroom pan sauce. We'll eat steak with mashed potatoes and a vegetable side.

Kimchi in Glendale
Wed., Nov. 9, 2022, 6:15 pm-8:30 pm
We will make cabbage kimchi, Korea’s national dish! We will use Wisconsin grown cabbage. When Napa cabbage is in season in November and December, it is time for Kimjang, Koreans’ annual process of making kimchi to last through the winter. Korean families and neighbors make kimchi together. Each pair has their own station. This kimchi has shellfish, but fish sauce can be used instead. Rice is provided. Please notify the instructor at firstname.lastname@example.org about allergies and dietary restrictions.
Private cooking classes
I'm available for private cooking classes! I can bring the ingredients to you. I can teach students how to make a typical Korean weeknight meal. We could make bibimbap, or Korean rice bowl. We could make kimchi stew, soft tofu stew, spicy beef stew, soybean paste stew or other classic Korean stews. A private cooking class is more intimate. I have more time to talk about Korean culture!
