The 2020 (online) Kimjang Festival

Did you think that the second lockdown would get in the way of the second Kimjang Festival? Think again. The organisers have been working hard to create an online programme of events looking at how people are making kimchi at home in the UK. There are also spotlights on some innovative restaurants and chefs in London who are using Korean flavours in contemporary ways. And the festival concludes with the official launch of the Kimjang Project recipe book.

It’s nice that the Ambassador has lent her support. I rather like her hanbok-style apron. Someone should start making those and selling them!
