KOPIA HOSTED KIMCHI WORKSHOP IN NUWARA ELIYA
Kimchi is a traditional fermented Korean side dish made of vegetables (e.g. cabbage, chilli powder, garlic and scallions) and various seasonings. There are more than 300 different kinds of kimchi, depending on the main vegetable ingredient used and the region or season in which they’re made. The KOPIA Centre hosted a Kimchi Workshop on 28 November 2016 at the Divisional Secretariat in Nuwara Eliya to publicise ways to utilise cabbage and radish in everyday cooking. The event also aimed to promote the consumption of such vegetables in Sri Lanka. More than 60 Sri Lankan housewives participated, and learned how to make kimchi from Korean and Sri Lankan food technologists.
