What is Banchan Workshop?


Banchan Workshop is a casual and fun gathering to brush up your Korean home-cooking skills. Class sizes are small where we gather around the kitchen to cook and feast together. Currently workshops are happening few times a year (preferably one every season). Interested in attending one of our upcoming workshops? Sign up for the mailing list to receive first notices on date & time, location and to book seats. Hope you can join us in 2016-2017!

Selina was super nice and helpful! She has great knowledge and background for Korean cooking, and her recipes were easy to follow. I loved the laid back atmosphere that Selina created. She was very polite and charismatic. It felt like cooking with family, and that’s what Korean cooking is all about. Can’t wait for the next class!   _Nancy C.

This workshop was so much fun! It was great to connect with other Bay Area folks looking how to sharpen their cooking skills and learn some yummy dishes along the way. I especially liked feasting on all of our hard work.   _Janet P.

Where do I start? Our workshop was so much fun and not to mention full with amazing dishes that we all took part in creating before we feasted at the end for our labor of love. Selina designed a great menu for us all to learn and enjoy. She even provided us all with a thoughtful compilation of recipes from her dishes in all her classes!   _Stephanie C.

Selina and her staff made the event fantastic. Not only did we have a wonderful venue to cook in, we all had different tasks which led to a variety of dishes on the menu. The ingredients were fresh and organic (thanks to Whole Foods) and you could tell how hard Selina worked to make this event happen. There was a lot of attention to detail and the results led to a great gathering of learning more about Korean cuisine and having fun cooking and eating together! I’m definitely going to make these recipes again and share with family and friends. _Lynn J.

Had a very fun time making kimchi with Selina! The location was comfortable and accommodating, and everything was delicious. I especially loved that we got to take our kimchi home in cute little jars, which Selina provided. It was really sweet that her mom was so involved, sharing her kitchen wisdom. Thanks!   _Gabrielle S.
