Our personal favourite. Kimchi is a potent Korean staple that has become a global fascination: it is rich in texture, flavour and heat. This particular version of Kimchi is plant-based but traditional recipes would include fish or shellfish and fish sauce, making it a ‘complete’ food to sustain communities the year round. Our particular style of Kimchi is very saucy and condiment like. It’s a massive hit with friends who lather it on everything from sandwiches to pizza. Fundamentally Kimchi is a process not a blueprint and the many variations of Kimchi are testimony to the love of this stinky treat.This is our humble gesture to the great art and lineage of kimchi.

Fun fact: Kimchi is officially the only ferment that’s been off world – Yi-So Yeon, the first Korean astronaut in space took into orbit her specially formulated, bacteria-free Kimchi back in 2008. The space programme was afraid the radiation might create some seriously formidable Kimchi microbes that may have posed a threat to earth-dwelling peoples.
