Korean

Over the past 10 years, Hansik (Korean cuisine) has transformed into a global phenomenon. In USA, authentic Korean flavours can now be found in both fine dining restaurants and taco trucks serving Kimchi tacos in street corners. In Asia, the popularity of TV series such as Dae Jang Geum and The Grand Chef has made Korean cuisine one of the hottest trends in the past few years. You are now as likely to find a Korean BBQ restaurant as any other cuisine in major cities around the world.

But there’s much more to Hansik than BBQ and the kimchi, the pickled vegetable served as a starter in all Korean restaurants. The Kimchi, for example, is something that can be used both in a soup (Kimchi Jigae) and for stir frying with rice. For a culture where beef is the most prized of all meats, the bulgogi marinade, made of soy sauces, garlic and sesame oil, is one of the most popular everyday beef dishes. And above all, there is the gochujang: the naturally fermented chilli soy bean paste that is the foundation of authentic Korean cooking and gives any dish a distinctive taste that defines Korean cuisine.
