frame presents A Korean Buddhist Dinner with Zingermans’ Chef Ji Hye Kim of Miss Kim Korean Restaurant
Meet Ji Hye Kim, chef and founder of contemporary Korean hot spot Miss Kim in Ann Arbor, partnered with Zingerman’s. This overly-passionate chef grew up in Seoul, South Korea and is obsessed with serenity, meditation, the finer points of fermentation and Korean Buddhist cuisine. Kim says her love for food began at a young age when her mother made her homemade Korean food from scratch. “My mother didn’t teach me how to cook,” she says. “What she taught was to recognize good food because she fed me good food.” The Miss Kim project is the culmination of years experimenting with her favorite childhood dishes, the pursuit of inspiration and the imagination to partner with Zingermans founders Paul Saginaw and Ari Weinzweig. Miss Kim’s secret weapon: her personal collection of ancient Korean culinary texts. Fast forward and here we are together at frame: with a creative Miss Kim menu reinterpreting Korean Buddhist cuisine, foraged and fermented flavor, using seasonal ingredients and traditional Korean products. The tastes and sensations, accompanied by extraordinary Korean cocktails are every bit as good as they sound in the menu below. The Buddhist philosophy of this dinner is that when you cook, you must cook with the same care, love and tenderness as a parent might for a child. Simply put: your belly and heart will leave nourished on every level after this frame experience.
