Clear your kitchen cupboards and make way for some Seoul food.
Spicy seasonings, tender marinated meats, flavourful seafood, bright fermented vegetables and traditional kimchi cabbage: Korean recipes are one of the hottest food trends this year.
Light yet full of flavour and cooked in very little oil, Korean food is amongst the healthiest in the world.
A soft bed of rice forms the backbone of most Korean dishes, many of which are presented tapas-style, with lots of ingredients served up in small, bite-sized portions.
Traditionally eaten with chopsticks or sujeo spoons; bold, intense flavours are central to Korean cuisine.
Dishes are flavoured with a blend of fiery spices and sauces like gochujang paste, kochukaru chilli flakes, doenjang soy bean paste, soy sauce, garlic and ginger. Piping hot soup, hearty stews and dumplings are all popular meals.
