Seoul Coffee Expo 2012

The success of the Korea Cafe Fair, held in the tail end of winter the past two years, seems to have motivated the COEX convention center to start organizing their own effort, the Seoul Coffee Expo. I, on behalf of ZenKimchi, was on hand for the first annual expo. “Why fix what isn’t broken” seemed to be the mantra for the expo organizers, as it was remarkably similar in format and even layout to the Cafe Fairs of...

See us! Lotsa Korean Food Stuff Coming Up.

Korea Food Expo 2011 is running at the COEX November 9-12, though I don’t understand why the banner on their website looks like they’re about to make Italian pasta. The 1st Asia Food Forum will also occur there on November 10th. We’ll be involved in a few ways. ZenKimchi Booth ZenKimchi will be featured in a booth called “Diplomats of Korean Food.” We actually have a freakin’ booth! It will have the...

Korea Day in Central Park

Korea Day in New York happened on Tuesday, August 16th, almost 2 weeks ago.  This post is way overdue, but I still want to share some pictures from the day.  Also, the video clip is poorly shot with my iphone, but I thought it would give you an idea of the vibe of the day. It was overcast earlier in the day, but slowly cleared and became sunny by early afternoon.  The event was at Naumberg Bandshell in Central Park, same location as...

'Brew Your Best' Fest — November 20th

There. Done. Actually, I went to the Homebrew Korea SMaSH Off back in June, and it was great. The buzz is that this will be even better. Check out the Facebook event page and the thread at the HBK Forums. And if you have your own batch of homebrew, bring it along. It occurs on Little ZenKimchi’s due date, so I don’t know if I’ll be able to make...

Busan International Food Expo 2010

The Busan International Food Expo 2010 will go from November 10th to November 13th at BEXCO and Yawijeon Market 야외전시장. I don’t know how “international” they plan for this to be since the “English” button doesn’t work this late in the game. But they do want some foreign cooks to participate. Busan Haps says they’re looking for 5-6 to 4 (isn’t that a Chicago song) cooks. I think...
