Update: Dec 16, 2016
The Korean Cultural Centre in Viet Nam (KCC) hosted a cooking class on December 13 to introduce Korean cuisine and culinary culture.


Under the instruction of culinary expert Hong Shine, participants learnt how to make three typical Korean dishes, including Gujeolpan (platter of nine delicacies), Jeyuk-bossam (pork belly slices with kimchi), and Kimchijeon (kimchi pancake).


The programme, jointly held by the KCC, the Korean Embassy in Viet Nam and the Korea Agro-Fisheries & Food Trade Corporation (aT), aimed to provide participants with an experience of authentic Korean cuisine and cooking methods.


According to KCC Director Lee Dae Joong, the culinary culture of a country can tell a lot about its nature, history and environment.


The KCC will make more efforts to introduce Vietnamese visitors to Korean cuisine along with its striking flavours and fragrances, he said.


Culinary expert Hong Shine has developed her own recipes for many Korean dishes. She has starred in many cuisine programmes in the Republic of Korea, and has authored a cookbook on family recipes.
