I want to thank everyone for participating in the Rice Cake festival held by the Institute of Tradtional Korean Foods on May 8th and 9th. I think it was an overwhelming success and the festival really showed Korea in a positive light all over the world. I wanted to post some media that I found on the net.
First of all, I would like to thank Robyn Lee of Seriouseats.com for her coverage and for Rachel Yang for coming to the event. Secondly, I would like to thank Dr. Yoon Sook-ja, Hyang Soo-Hyang, and all the people at the Institute for Traditional Korean Food for holding the event. Also, I would like to thank Terry Rah for her help. I couldn't have done this without her. And I can't forget about Maureen O'Crowley, Chef Paul Schenks, and Chef Ciarian Hickey for their hospitality.
Again, I would like to thank everyone that participated in the event. We couldn't have done it without you.
