Discover Korean Food On CNN ‘Talk Asia’

By  | 

With the influence of Korean pop and culture, Korean food has also ignited a worldwide craze with chefs around the world bringing the best of the cuisine to the West. CNN International correspondent Sumnima Udas will explore South Korea to find out the tastes at the heart of Korean cuisine on this special ‘Talk Asia.’

While the world of contemporary Korean dishes are growing in popularity, CNN turns its attention to one organization trying to preserve the tradition of the cuisine. At Arumjigi they call themselves “the culture keepers”, constantly working to uphold the essence of Korean culture while finding ways to embrace modernity. CNN travels with them to the islands of Sinan County on a search for the Nibe Croaker, also known as the ‘people’s fish’. Historically this fish was a popular ingredient to fight the heat of the summer months. Through this expedition, CNN discovers how the chefs of Arumjigi work to bring back traditional ingredients with a contemporary flare, ensuring the tradition of Korean cuisine doesn’t get lost in the past.
