"As the Republic of Korea continues to emerge as a vibrant cultural force throughout the world, Korean food is playing a prominent role in shaping the nation?s public image. The World Korean Food Festival in Washington D.C., preceded by festivals in Japan and China, brings together more than 15 of Korea?s brightest chefs, cuisine scholars, and entrepreneurs for a public demonstration and tasting of a broad spectrum of Korean cuisine: appetizers, main dishes, side dishes, sweets, beverages, and?of course?a variety of kimchi." We're trying to have a Korean Waves cooking event, but this event is better than what we would be able to get at this price (no cost). "More than 30 different dishes will be presented, prepared by professional Korean cuisine experts."
