January 2004

Program:"Growing Up in a Korean Kitchen"

Hi Soo Shin Hepinstall is a graduate of Ewha Women's University is Seoul and began her culinary and cultural research while living in Europe in the 1970s. In 1983, after receiving a certificate from the Cordon Bleu in Paris, she continued her culinary studies in Seoul and Southeast Asia. She currently teaches in both Korea and the U.S. and is a weekly newspaper columnist.

Since our December meeting had to be cancelled at the last minute due to inclement weather, Ms. Hepinstall was willing to postpone her presentation until our January meeting. We hope we reached most of you in time. In the future, in case of bad weather, please check with a Board member to be sure that the meeting will take place. This is especially important for those without e-mail.
