THE SOUTH KOREANS are eager to promote the spread of Korean cuisine throughout the world. The Korea Agro-Fisheries Trade Corporation, which is behind the new program to teach Korean cooking, said in a press release:
(E)fforts will be made to open courses on Korean food in world-famous cooking institutions like the Culinary Institute of America and France’s Le Cordon Bleu.
So, what country did they choose to kick off their program and get it off to a good start?
They’re going to offer 25 courses to the 1,300 students at the Hattori Nutrition College in Tokyo from April to December. They picked a well-known place, too–the students at that school served as assistants to the contestants on the Japanese version of the Iron Chef program, and the headmaster acted as the commentator.
Did somebody give you the impression Koreans and Japanese can’t get along?
Don’t believe it.
