K-Cooking Class: Kkomak Bibimbap

On December 2nd (Fri) from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm, Itaewon Global Village Center will be holding a Korean Food Cooking Class. This class will be held at a cooking studio (Hansik Space Eum) near Anguk Station.

This time we will be cooking kkomak bibimbap. “Kkomak” is the Korean word for cockle. Winter is the best season to eat seashells in Korea such as kkomak or cockle. Kkomak are small, saltwater clams that grow plump during the winter season. While there are several ways to enjoy these clams, one way that Koreans eat them is by adding them to bibimbap. “Bibimbap” is made of two Korean words: “bibim” which means to mix, and “bap” which means rice. In other words, it is a mixed rice topped with meat and other vegetables, egg, and gochujang (pepper paste) sauce. This, together with kkomak, makes the perfect winter comfort food! So, don’t let this opportunity pass, and learn how to make your own kkomak bibimbap.
