 The Supper Club...                                                                                                            

One week to prepare, 3 seatings, 6 courses...

Why a Korean gluten free supper club?  We wanted to share our interpretation of Korean cuisine.  The menu was created from our hearts, offering gluten free locally sourced ingredients.  This all happened on a cold January evening.  Folks from all over New York trekked out hungry+filled with excitement+was ready to dive into new flavors.

It just felt right...

We wanted to share our childhood food memories with everyone.  Things may change over the years, but the food memory always remains.  My personal favorite? The 'Quinoa bibim bap' with stir fried anchovy, butternut squash, watercress, red cabbage, quail egg, sesame oil, with a brush of red pepper paste. Our first supper club together was just sensational!  So stay tuned for more exciting projects to come:)

Thanks again for all those who came out to support the event, and for those who rooted for us from afar!  We could not have done this without you~

With gratitude,
