Chef Jun Pyo Kwon will teach you how to master the art of tofu making at home. He will talk you through the different types of tofu you can make, the various beans you can use and the different setting agents.
You will also learn how to cook two Korean traditional dishes made with fresh tofu.
This is a fully hands-on class : you will make your own tofu, and then use it to cook a delicious meal that we will all share at the end of the class.
