The Korean restaurant Propaganda is a collaboration between Italian natural wine pusher Riccardo Marcon of Barabba and Korean-born chef Youra Kim. The event includes a full set menu dinner at Propaganda, put together specially for The Hungries, paired with sool from Yunguna Brewery. Grab a spot on the Discord forum!
