What is Kimchi?

Kimchi is a very spicy Korean dressing which they make from fermented cabbage, and many seasonings. They serve kimchi as a special side dish.

The dish has always been loved in Korea, locals even say “kimchi” meaning “cheese”, when posing for a photo.

Is it good for a wedding?

We’d give it 2 points from 5. Some love spicy food, but, however, this is not the best choice to be taken, when you want to please the majority of wedding guests. The hard task of catering for guests of various nationalities, tastes and ages at the same time makes one opt for a much more neutral main dish. Nevertheless, we suppose is may be used as a part of original canapé at a wedding, if you wish to give it a try.
