Kimchi Fried Chicken
February 26 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
CHI KITCHEN, makers of Rhode Island’s local kimchi, and LAUGHING GORILLA CATERING, are teaming up to support hunger relief in Rhode Island on Sunday, February 26 from 12 pm-6pm with a pop up Kimchi Fried Chicken event at 94 Carpenter Street in Providence. Kimchi Fried Chicken will be available for dining in and for take-out, while supplies last.
“Hunger relief in Rhode Island is something that is very close to my heart. Working in the food industry for the last twenty years I take great joy from feeding people. Yet, 1 in 8 Rhode Islanders is food insecure, including many of our children. I wanted to do something about it. I had all of this savory kimchi juice leftover from our production, I thought, what if we brined chicken in this juice along with buttermilk and fried it? I reached out to my friend Chef Jason Timothy of Laughing Gorilla and immediately he was on board, and our Kimchi Fried Chicken event was born” Says Minnie Luong, of Chi Kitchen.
A percentage of the proceeds will benefit the Rhode Island Community Food Bank, and guests are encouraged to bring a donation of a non-perishable food donation. For more information and suggested food donation ideas please visit www.chikitchenfoods.com.
“We are excited to be teaming up with Minnie and Chi Kitchen for a fun event that’s helping to give back to the community,” Says Chef Jason Timothy of Laughing Gorilla.
