We have come to the last day of the program and we have only touched the surface of the Korean culture but hectic schedule did gives us a quick look at how Koreans lived from the Urban to the suburban and the rural. English may not be their strong point but they at least tried to communicate and that willingness translate into a warmth I greatly appreciates.
So what did we do on the last day. Perhaps it is time to slow down and smell the
Roses Canola flowers!
The Royal Banquet – Joseon Dynasty Court Cuisine
If one wants to feel royal, the best way is to eat what the King’s eating. Now we are at Surime getting a taste of some court cuisine from the Joseon era. This is definitely not your typical Korean food so our stomach is definitely ready for the good stuff!
Looking through Surime’s brochure, it promises food preparation that will have the best taste and served with the utmost care! Gosh it sounds really grand!! They even purpose built a house just outside Gyeongju so that the food they are presenting is put in the right settings! Oh the attention to detail! Time for some photos of the food!
