Chef Jenny Lee helped prep these dishes in one of her private cooking classes and will bring those talents to a Korean pop-up dinner in March.

Each week on This Bites, dining critic Ann Christenson from Milwaukee Magazine and Radio Milwaukee’s resident foodie Tarik Moody dig into the city’s culinary and restaurant culture to help you find new spots, old favorites and the best ingestibles around Milwaukee.

Before the BTS ARMY or BLINK or whatever gets all excited about the headline, I’ll quickly point out that it has nothing to do with the musical movement that started half a world away. Food lovers in the area should be excited, though, because on this episode we talk about a Korean pop-up dinner coming to Amilinda.

Jenny Lee can usually be found teaching cooking classes as the chef-owner of Perilla Kitchen. On an upcoming Monday night, March 6, she’ll use the restaurant’s Wisconsin Avenue space to host “Kiuda,” which means “nourish” in Korean.

It’s an appropriate label considering the depth of the menu, which includes items like smoked pork kimchi stew, bulgogi and a Patbingsu bar for dessert. You can see the full lineup Lee plans to serve that night and buy tickets on the event page.

Here’s what else we have for you on the pod this week:
