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 will be featured in a booth called “Diplomats of Korean Food.” We actually have a freakin’ booth! It will have the history of ZenKimchi with pics of our writers and a computer showing the site.
ZenKimchi’s Head Matchmaker (you’ll find details on that later) June Chang will be my cooking partner in a cooking contest for foreigners on November 9th from 11:30 to 2:30. COEX 3rd floor, C Hall. We have an ambitious menu planned.
1st Asia Food Forum
I’ll be a panelist along with Paolo De Maria (Italian Food Education Style) and Remo Bordux (Les Toques Blanche Korea), moderated by the dynamic Benjamin Joinau (Le Saint-Ex). This will also be at the COEX on November 10th at 3:00. The topic is “Can Korean food become the next global hit?”
The cooking contest will also be taped by MBC for a piece they’re doing. You can participate by answering this one-question survey.
Hope to see ya!
