MANILA -- A top Korean chef is in Manila to showcase a taste of Korea’s finest cuisine.
Jang Jin-mo, one of Korea’s leading chefs, gave a sample of his culinary expertise during a dinner hosted by South Korean Ambassador Han Dong-man at the Grand Hyatt Manila in Taguig City Wednesday night.
Invited guests included Foreign Secretary Teodoro L. Locsin Jr., National Security Adviser Secretary Hermogenes C. Esperon Jr., and Central Bank Governor Benjamin Diokno, among others.
It was virtually “a taste of Korea’s finest” food as Jang demonstrated his culinary expertise by cooking Korean-style marinated beef with mushroom puree as the main dish, a steamed ginger seabass, soy sauce, sesame seeds, mirin, spring onion, and courgette ribbons, and a seafood soup with winter melon, scallops.
The appetizer was a raw fish, gochujang, pickle with fresh walnut, and the dessert was white chocolate red bean mousse with mango cream, and a freshly brewed Korean traditional tea.
Jin-mo, a chef for 10 years, is co-owner of a popular restaurant in South Korea.
He was given a standing ovation by the guests, who were very much satisfied with his culinary expertise in Korean food.
In his short welcome remarks, Han noted that many Filipinos are patronizing Korean restaurants not only in Manila, but also in the provinces.
He also said Koreans and Filipinos cook similar food such as pancit, and bulalo, and prepare the popular halo-halo. PNA
