20240307_Ssuk Makgeolli Making Class

On Thursday, March 7th, from 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm, Itaewon Global Village Center will hold a “Ssuk Makgeolli Making Class,” which will be led by the Institute of Korean Makgeolli Association.

One of the well-known Korean traditional wines is made of rice. Since rice is a staple in Korea, it is only very apt for them to make wine out of it. Through this class, you will learn about the culture and history of makgeolli and how to make ssuk (mugwort) makgeolli. Ssuk (쑥) is used in soups and salads. Aromatic and slightly bitter leaves can be eaten raw or cooked. The leaves and buds can be used as a bitter flavoring agent to season fat, meat, and fish. Mugwort was used to flavor beer.

As part of the experience, you will have time to make one bottle of ssuk makgeolli, and you can take it home.

**FOOD ALLERY WARNING: Basic ingredients that will be used in this class are as follows: rice, nuruk (Korean traditional yeast), mugwort, water
