In Jeonju, the ideas of traditional cuisine are still alive. At Hakindang house, you can experience a traditional Confucianist-style meal from the year 1908 in a beautifully restored hanok. The family at Hakindang follow traditional recipes that have been handed down for generations- preserving the taste for their ancestors who have passed away.
Seoul Eaters, Hi this is Dan. I am working on a new project for the European Union (EU GI). We are making gift sets for Korean bloggers (you should have a naver, daum, or tistory blog that is in Korean). We’ll be giving media invites and preparing European Union Gift sets which will have premium cheeses, balsamic vinegars and other high quality products. If you are interested in applying to be a blogger for this program email me at [email protected]
I love berries. I mean I think most people do, right? They are delicious and I feel I get a lot of energy after eating them. I have to say that my favorite berry is blueberry. When I traveled to Nova Scotia I ate and drank many many pounds of those berries. It’s not just because of the taste, I think there is something in them that makes me crave the berry- it’s like there is something in the berry that my body needed so I have to consume as much as possible.
Recently, our company in conjunction with the Korea Culinary Tourism Association (KoCTA) is working with Danyang City, South Korea to promote the Aronia Berry. This year on This berry which is originally from North America has been eaten for over 100 years and they have been known to be a popular health berry. The Aronia berry, which is also known as the chokeberry has the highest concentration of antioxidants of all fruits.
You know how Korea is obsessed with health, well…it is believed that this berry can prevent aging. Actually all antioxidants prevent aging (but remember, the aronia berry has the most antioxidants of all berries).
This fruit contains alot of C3G which is Cyanidin 3-Guluoside. This is found in dark fruits and veggies and helps prevent aging by protecting against “free radical induced DNA damage.”
It also has a lot of Anthocyanin which is really important for cells and tissues. It gets rid of inflammation, free radicals, and reduces cancer risks.
Most people travel to different destinations for two reasons. The first reason is a major attraction such as a mountain, temple, landmarks, etc and the second is food. With the Chowzter group, we are traveling for food and boy are we eating and drinking a lot. I went straight from my first food tour to the second with Chowzter. We returned to Borough market where I had an epic sausage pasty that had some sage and garlic. It was about the size of my fist and it was excellent. We then had the most amazing grilled cheese ever. The chef put a ton of cheese on bread and pressed it until the bread was impregnated with cheese. Wow….We also had a raclette there. After this we took a long walk along the Thames where I got to see the Shakespeare Globe Theatre and great views of London. Then we went to Story, a speakeasy of a pizza joint where the chef serves organic pizzas using all local products. He doesn’t even use yeast (because he couldn’t find organic yeast) so the pizza is served on a very thin cracker like crust. We all debated if this would be considered a pizza since the crust was near non-existent, but the flavor definitely was.
After this we headed back to South Place Hotel where we had a tasting of sliders and other dishes. The food at South Place Hotel was excellent, but after so much food all day, all I could do was taste.
That evening we went to the Great Northern Hotel where we had cocktails first and then we got a special surprise. At the hotel, one of the managers opened up KIOSK, a new sandwich joint that isn’t even open yet. They gave a special tasting for us and I ordered an amazing salt beef reuben with saurkraut. Wow. The melted emmental cheese on pumpernickel bread with lots of soft, hot meat and saurkraut. It was a bit of an overkill for the day but it surely was a denouement for the day. Wow.
Don’t worry, I worked out a lot the next day to make up for it.
Today I will be going to St. John’s for lunch and tonight is going to be the Chowzter Award Ceremony at 7pm. Hanchu Korean Fried Chicken is up for the best fried chicken in the world. I hope that it wins.
Blog you later.
