Seoul Gourmet September 26-30, 2010

World Class Chefs: Jordi Roca, Michel Troisgros, Carlo Cracco, Sang-Hoon Degeimbre, Ken Hom, Fernando del Cerro, Luigi Biasetto, and Bruno Goussault will be coming to Seoul in September!!!

Seoul is having a World Class Gourmet Dining Event in Seoul next month. Eight of the World's Top Chefs will be visiting Seoul to give presentations and to cook for the great city of Seoul.

There will be culinary tours and market classes for those that would like to get hands on experience with Korean cuisine as well as Master Classes for invited master chefs (If you are a licensed Chef and would like to come to this, contact me and I can put you in touch with the people organizing this class).

For those Gourmands that are looking for a world class dinner. The chefs will be cooking at luxury hotels around the city. Here's the schedule and venue:

Right now details are scant on the prices and how to make reservations. But I assume that they will be up on the Seoul Gourmet Website soon. If you want to make reservations early, I recommend, you contact the hotels directly for now.

The thing that I am most looking forward to is the Gala Dinner where 6 of the top chefs will be cooking individual courses. This will be held at the Grand Hyatt Seoul on September 28 from 7-9pm.  Ken Hom is the man who was the KBS special "Noodle Road" and I can't wait to eat his noodles.

This will be one of the top food events in the world and I think it will showcase Korean food and prove that the Wall Street Journal was correct by saying that Korea is the new Foodie's Destination.

I'll be posting more information on this event as I get it.
