On Saturday, August 17, chef Bill Kim is hosting a cooking class ($50 per person) that will teach you how to prepare a Korean barbecue-style picnic with watermelon salad, Korean barbecue short ribs, and "quick Kirby" kimchi — a refreshing alternative to coleslaw if we do say so ourselves. Along with ingredient knowledge and technique, you'll love Kim's stories and anecdotes that make cooking relatable to the lazy girl in all of us. And because taste testing is crucial before trying out new eats on your guests, you get to enjoy the feast (labor free) along with some yummy passion fruit margs on the patio afterward. Here's to barbecue never be boring again.
bellyQ, 1400 West Randolph Street (at Loomis Street); 312-563-1010.
