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 Vietnam 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.
