Sollip pop-up at CORD Restaurant

A visit to Michelin-starred Sollip is a huge treat, but it will take your bank account a while to recover from the delicious and sophisticated experience. Here’s an opportunity to get a taste of that sophistication for half the price (but with commensurately fewer dishes). Don’t miss this opportunity. It’s sure to book out quickly.

Chef Woongchul Park and Chef Bomee Ki: a smiling Korean couple in chef's whites

For its first pop-up ever, CORD by Le Cordon Bleu partners with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Korean Foundation for International Cultural Exchange, and the Korean Cultural Centre UK to introduce a Korean-inspired menu from the duo behind one Michelin-starred restaurant Sollip, in a celebration of Korean culture.

Cord will host the pop-up on Monday 3rd July and is excited to announce the participation of guest chefs, husband-and-wife team Woongchul Park and Bomee Ki, whose restaurant Sollip near London Bridge received a Michelin star in 2022. Woongchul and Bomee will bring to Cord a marriage of European and Korean cuisine that combines their cultural heritage and culinary training. The couple met at Le Cordon Bleu London as students, where Chef Woongchul is a Diplôme de Cuisine alumnus and Chef Bomee a Diplôme de Pâtisserie alumna.

They have designed an experience at Sollip that truly represents their culinary philosophy, combining their love for Korean food culture and passion for French cuisine. Their dishes are elevated interpretations of their favourite European classics combining Korean spices and ingredients, whilst balancing traditional cooking techniques from home and modern western culinary skills. The name Sollip translates to pine needle in Korean, which is understood to be one of the most effective natural ingredients to ignite smoke and flames in Korean cooking. An ode to traditional Korean cooking as it is the main inspiration behind the concept at Sollip.

A guest chef pop-up like this is not one to miss. Guests can dine with us for lunch or dinner to experience Woongchul and Bomee’s creations at Cord’s fine dining restaurant, whereby the culinary philosophies of Le Cordon Bleu will be presented through Korean inspired dishes.

A reservation is essential for dining with us on this day. Book your table now to avoid missing out on this fantastic pop-up event.
