2009 Korean Temple Food Festival
Korean cuisine isn’t all about kimchi, ddeokbokki and makgeolli. This year’s Korea Temple Food Festival will be revealing a host of traditional dishes and drinks together with a series of seminars by prominent monks from Korea, Japan and Taiwan in an attempt to add Buddhist cuisine to “the growing table of global candidates.”
Boasting a series of art exhibitions, a temple food market, tea ceremony programs, tours, temple stay programs (for a select number of international applicants) and an exclusive gala, the three-day event offers participants an opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the facets that form an authentic temple food experience.
