The Korean Spirit and Culture Project will be returning to the Abbot Public Library on Sunday, January 13th to give the Marblehead community a taste of Korean culture in a cooking demonstration!
70 percent of Korean food is fermented, including Kimchi, a popular Korean dish that contains approximately more than 100 times the probiotics of yogurt, benefiting the body in ways that you cannot even imagine! The meals are served in Bangjja – traditional bronzeware with health benefits of its own, including producing beneficial minerals and neutralizing harmful substances.
The program on Sunday, January 13th will include the demonstration of four Korean dishes, after which a full home-cooked Korean meal will be served with the traditional table setting in Bangjja bronzeware, followed by the screening of a short film on Korean culture. Recipes and other complimentary books on Korean history and culture will be handed out.
Registration is required for this program, due to limited seating and so the proper number of meals can be prepared! Sign up at the Library’s Main Desk or call 781-631-1481 to reserve a seat.

Abbot Public Library is committed to offering its programs free of charge, so that all programs are available to all members of the community. Because of the special nature of this program, and particularly the cost of providing food for both the cooking demonstrations and the full home-cooked Korean meals which will be served to all attendees, a donation of $6.00 is encouraged.
