Kimchi Block: cooking hack to hit UAE stores soon

Two new Korean products that will make you prepare kimchi like a pro are expected to be out in UAE stores soon, has learned.

The Kimchi Block by Spoonkey and Kimchi Spices, a traditional kimchi seasoning block by Kisoondo, were unveiled during the recent Miracle K-Food Project organized by Korea Agro-Fisheries & Food Trade Corporation (aT Center Dubai).

“Kimchi usually takes about two weeks to prepare. Luckily, a Korean Masterchef came up with these products to make our lives easier,” Jimmy Yu, a Dubai-based Korean chef, told

Kimchi Block is essentially kimchi in a packet. Just add a bit of water and you have instant kimchi. Kimchi Spices, on the other hand, contains all the hard-to-find ingredients you need to create a kimchi marinade.

Yu led the KFood Workshop at Mamalu’s Kitchen in Nakheel Mall where he showed participants how to make kimchi and kimchi pancakes using the two products. Watch it unfold here:
