In this cooking class, Chef Edwin shares the secret of Um.Ma’s unique take on the fried chicken sandwich. This mouth-watering meld of Korean and soul flavors draws on the legendary southern-style “Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich” combined with Korean spicy seasonings and toppings of cucumber “muchim” (or salad) and kimchi slaw. All served on a brioche bun.
