Whiteside is a lovely country area outside Brisbane, with some beautiful countryside and old world charms.

In the class, we covered all the ingredients and flavours of Korean cuisine, and showed how to make kimchi, bibimbap (a popular and famous Korean mixed rice favourite) and a number of side dishes.

The food was met with a mix of curiosity, wonder, welcome and enjoyment - especially as we explored the spicy side of life in Korean cuisine. Korean food is growing in popularity and familiarity worldwide, and Australia is no exception. For Korean food Brisbane is no stranger. We've had Korean restaurants and a small population of Koreans in Brisbane for over 30 years.

Korean supermarkets and restaurants abound across Brisbane, and the Brisbane Korean population is growing rapidly, with an estimated 20 thousand Koreans now living in Brisbane.

We are available for Korean cooking and kimchi demos and run classes regularly in Brisbane. Please check our calendar of events for upcoming classes or contact us anytime.

I showcased their amazing organic porky belly (a classic in Korean BBQ), beef and chicken.

It's easy to see why this business - both Sherwood Road and Morley Street Organic Meats - is thriving and so popular, with loyal regular customers supporting the grass-fed, ethically raised and certified organic meat movement. Their variety is also amazing, including a range of gluten-free products.

With the growing popularity of Korean food, it was great to have so many people enjoy the samples we provided on the morning ... and also watch the faces of newcomers to Korean cuisine light up on discovering this zesty fresh spicy food. The collaboration of Sherwood Road Organic Meats' produce and our Korean BBQ style was a hit !

We are available for cooking demos and we run regular Korean cooking and Korean kimchi classes for those interested in exploring this amazing healthy and popular food. Contact us to find out more and check our events calendar for upcoming classes.
