Since I’m teaching ESL again (after being home with the baby…who isn’t a baby anymore), we decided to kick start International Cuisine Night with dishes from South Korea. I also incorporated the evening into our curriculum. My ESL students have monthly presentations, and I thought it would be a great opportunity for my student to talk about Korean food and Korean culture in front of an audience who just happen to be educators as well.
The poor guy was so nervous that A) he had to speak English in front of anyone other than me, and B) the audience consisted of 1 high school principal, 2 high school teachers, 1 public school teacher, 1 kindergarten teacher, and 1 ESL teacher.
Regardless, he did a fantastic job.
Chicken, potatoes, veggies in a mildly spicy sauce
Hobak buchimgea (Korean pancakes with zucchini and/or other veggies)
Looking forward to the rest of our International Cuisine Nights. On the list: Mongolia, Switzerland, Mexico, Hungary, and the rest to be announced.
