Ssam is a Korean word that literally translates to wrapped. It’s most commonly served as red leaf lettuce, a savory piece of protein, and a banchan (Korean side dish) or two bundled together. Join Sara Upshaw—Seattle-based cookbook author, pop-up chef, and food blogger—where she’ll show you how to make one of the main components from her book Korean Barbecue at Home. Prepare yourself for a fun and hands-on way to eat a variety of bold flavors that work in harmony together.
Using Sara’s book as your guide, you will learn how to make oi muchim (Spicy cucumber salad) and ssamjang (fermented soybean and chili paste sauce), how to slice and marinate ssam mu (thinly sliced marinated Korean radish), and cook bulgogi (marinated beef bulgogi served with red leaf lettuce, perilla leaves, mu ssam, and rice). In addition, Sara will provide tastes of two different homemade kimchis –baechu (napa cabbage) and kkakdugi (radish)—and discuss Korean ingredients and how they vary from other Asian ingredients (yes, there will be a tasting!).
