The Korean Food Foundation and Ministry for Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries are holding a Korean recipe contest “Share your Delicious Secret with Super Junior” through the end of December.
All fans of Korean cuisine around the globe are welcome to apply. Applicants should submit their unique recipes for Korean dishes with an explanation of the ingredients and pictures of the final product through Dec. 31 via http://sharehansikrecipe.hansik.org/main.
Gwak Beom-guk, director of the Korean Food Foundation said “I hope ‘hallyu,’ or the Korean wave, transcends K-pop to K-food.”
“This event aims to make Korean food friendly for home cooking,” he said. “I also hope foreigners discover the potential of Korean food to become a part of hallyu through devising their own recipes.”
Five winners will be chosen based on three criteria — creativity, practicality and easiness to follow of the recipes.
All winners will be invited to Korea in January to participate in opportunities to learn more about Korean food such as visiting famous restaurants and attending culinary lectures. The winners will also go on a date with K-pop group Super Junior. More details will be announced in January.
