Join us for a cooking class with Chef Michelle Chiu to cook, eat, laugh, and learn how to make Bulgogi beef and spicy tuna Kimbap with the obangsek 5 colors. You’ll go home with Michelle’s recipes, your own bamboo kimbap rolling mat, and all the rolls of kimbap you made!
Colors are very symbolic and significant throughout Korean culture, design, traditions, and cooking. So much so that the concept has a name: 오방색 (obangsek, “5 directions of color”). Having all 5 colors (blue/green, red, white, black, yellow) in one dish is said to ensure a healthy and balanced life.
Kimbap is a traditional dish that follows this obangsek food philosophy. It tastes as good as it looks too! Kimbap is a staple in Korean culture, seen at formal banquets and in on-the-go kiosks alike: Lovingly packed into a 도시락 (doshilak) lunchbox for a school field trip, plated in glistening pyramidal mounds for a baby’s 돌 (dol) 1st birthday party, rolled in tin foil and sold out of a cooler in Seoul’s subway station, enjoyed halfway down the Delaware River on a tubing trip with friends.
