Gingko’s Kimchi Tasting Dinner This Sunday

I will be in Washington, DC the rest of the week enjoying as many of the events I can manage leading up to Savor.  My first stop when I return to Richmond on Sunday June 10th will be Ginkgo’s Kimchi Tasting Dinner at Kitchen Thyme.  Cassie Keene has lined up  some of Richmond’s favorite local chefs to prepare a menu using 5 different types of kimchi.


Chef Tim Bereika
Secco Wine Bar
Smoked duck, cumin yogurt, shaved radish with cucumber kimchi gazpacho

Chef John Maher
Charred calamari, roasted potato, black olive puree with napa cabbage kimchi

Chef Aaron Hoskins
Braised beef brisket, fried green onions, smoked fish sauce emulsion with shaved daikon radish kimchi

Chef Ryan Evans

Chef Randall Doetzer
Grilled sardines, smoked pickled ramp with ramp kimchi


Chef Collin Wagner
Kimchi macaron

Chef Tim Bereika
Donut with kimchi-chocolate pasty cream

In addition to this intriguing menu, there will be a sampling of Hardywood Park Craft Brewery beers among others. I also hear that Chef Johnny is working on a mango hefeweizen sorbet.
