Kimchi Pork Tofu Stack Recipe

I’ve been following the Korean food blogger from Oakland, Selina of SKYCreatives, on Instagram. A few months back, I decided that it was finally time for me to reach out and get to know her in person. I love the photos of classic Korean comfort food she cooks and styles, you can find the recipes for them on her blog. We instantly bonded over our mutual love of Korean food and desire to share the recipes through our online communities.

She also leads fun, cooking classes called Banchan Workshop where you can learn how to make some of your favorite Korean side dishes! The next workshop will be held this Saturday (November, 5th) at Neighbor in Oakland. It’s a free event so please be sure to stop by and say hello, I’ll be there to help out with the event as well.
