On Friday from 5-7pm at Provisions, we welcome Kheedim Oh, founder of Mama O’s Kimchee to do a demo of his handmade kimchee “Mama O’s” (named for his mother!). Mama O’s Kimchee is handmade in Brooklyn using a family recipe of Napa cabbage, Korean Daikon radish, hot red pepper flakes, garlic, salt, and some shrimp and or fish sauce to get it fermenting. Most commercial kimchee consists of cabbage that has been presliced and then mixed with other ingredients. At Mama O’s, they quarter and brine the cabbage first, then the leaves are individually stuffed with a mixture of shredded daikon, salt, sugar, hot pepper flakes, ginger, watercress, and fish sauce. After the quarters have been allowed to cure, they are cut into bit size pieces right before packaging. Utmost care is used to preserve the integrity of the each leaf so that maximum freshness and nutrition are maintained. With nothing heated over 115 degrees, Mama O’s is a raw food.
