Yesterday we were invited to attend Chung Jung One’s launch event event for their new line of Gochujang spicy sauces and marinades. Chung Jung One partnered with SideChef, an interactive cooking app, to give us a unique, hands-on experience at the New School of Cooking in Culver City.
This event was created to celebrate the launch of Gochujang Korean chili sauces in Los Angeles Markets. We used the app SideChef app to make tasty dishes that incorporated the sauces to add Korean flare. SideChef guided us amateur chefs by giving us step by step instructions and even set timers for us! Definitely a lifesaver!
Of course we had to start with the Spicy Watermelon Margarita! This delicious drink was not only perfect for a hot day, but it left us wanting even more! It was quick and simple to make and only needed a few ingredients before shaking it with some fresh ice. The lime on the top was the perfect touch and the spice from the Gochujang sauce was the perfect kick!
Next, we made the fish dish with a side salad. This dish was a little more complicated, but equally as delicious. After seasoning the fish with a little salt, we put it in the oven on broil for 4 minutes, which side chef so nicely timed for us. While the fish was cooking, we made the marinade which used the flavorful Gochujang chili sauce alongside other Korean staples like rice wine vinegar and fish sauce. After the 4 minutes was up, we brushed the fish with the marinade and put it back in the oven for 1 minute (again timed by sidechef). We then made our dressing for the salad, again using the chilli sauce. When our fish was ready, we mixed our salad and plated our dish. After a quick insta photoshoot we dug in and it was delicious!
The event was hosted at the New School of Cooking in Culver City. This space was awesome and we highly recommend it! We not only had our own space and utensils to cook, but the staff was super helpful and friendly as well. The space is open for private events, as well as daily cooking classes for the public to sign up for. This is the perfect place to have a girls night out!
Overall, we had a great time cooking and learning new recipes with the Gochujang sauces! Thank you to One Chung Jung and SideChef for hosting us!
