For the first session of the culinary lessons at the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines last July 7, students learned how to prepare and cook two of my favorite Korea dishes: bibimbap and bulgogi.

Aside from kimchi, bibimbap is perhaps one of the most recognized signature Korean dishes. Its name literally means “mixed meal” since it is made by mixing rice with various ingredients like meat, vegetables, and seasonings.

On the other hand, bulgogi is the Korean dish usually “Westernized” in a lot of fast food places. This is what is commonly known as Korean barbecue. Although the word bulgogi literally means “fire meat”, this doesn’t refer to spicy flavor but to the way bulgogi meat is cooked over an open flame.

Looks like they had lots of fun making delicious Korean dishes! (^~^)

Thanks to the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines for the photos.

    Do you have an idea if I can still join the class even though I didn’t make it on the enrollment? Thanks.

      I don’t think you can join the current classes anymore since they are already on-going (most of them midway already I think). You’ll have to wait for the next term. ^^
