Temple Cuisine Cooking Class at La CuisineThursday, June 17, 2010
Last week Michelle and I were invited by Jerry Kim of GSA Public Relations to participate in a temple cuisine cooking class at La Cuisine Cooking Studio. The class was taught by famous Buddhist Monk/Chef Dae-Ahn. Dae-Ahn is a well known specialist in Buddhist Temple Cuisine and I got to meet with her once before when I did a filming special for KBS TV.
The class was very informative and the menu for the day was:
Burdeok Pancake (우엉전).
Mountain Herb Rice (더덕밥)
Minari Soup (미나리즙탕)
After watching Chef Dae-Ahn demo the dishes, we had the chance to make our own. Ours maybe didn't look or taste as good as what Chef Dae-Ahn made, but it was still good. It was great to learn temple cuisine techniques.
