So posit the folks behind the upcoming Greater Boston Kimchi Festival. Kimchi is everywhere these days, though perhaps not quite as ubiquitous as cupcakes, and I say yay. For the fermented spicy cabbage that is a mainstay of the Korean diet is one of my favorite foods.

I think it could also become one of yours, if it isn't already. So let's celebrate it on March 21, from 3 to 7 p.m., at the Theodore Parker Unitarian Universalist Church, 1859 Centre St., West Roxbury. (Not that you need the address -- you can probably just smell your way there.)

There will be a contest for the best homemade kimchi, as well as tastings, demonstrations, door prizes, and more.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
