The replay of the webinar, "Bap Meogeureo Gaja! Tara, Kain Tayo! : A Korean and Filipino (Fusion) Cuisine Demonstration," held on 2 December 2020 is now available on YouTube.
ABOUT THE EVENT
This webinar shall introduce two famous Korean foods, bulgogi and kimchi chigue. Bulgogi is Korean equivalent of grilled beef or barbecue. Kimchi-jjigae or kimchi stew is a jjigae, or stew-like Korean dish, made with kimchi and other ingredients, such as pork or seafood, scallions, onions, and diced tofu. It is one of the most common stews in Korean cuisine. The cuisine demonstration shall give a glimpse of how the authentic dishes and the fusion are made by two chefs, a Korean and a Filipina. They will demonstrate how these are cooked similarly and differently. Some Korean words about the ingredients will also be introduced. Beyond mere knowledge of how these cuisines are prepared, a deeper understanding of Korean culture would be explored in this webinar through an exploration of the language used, their history, and how they are being ‘modified’ to suit the taste of non-Koreans.
