The Lowdown

Did you know that fiery Korean pickle kimchi dates from the 8th century?  Or that kimchi was a contender in Huffington Post's 2013 Superfood Death Match?

But to say that Korean cuisine is all kimchi, chili & BBQs is like saying Aussies only eat pies & burnt snags. Patently false.

At this Korean Adventure, start with an indulgent, mainly non-spicy, multi-course lunch at a Korean restaurant that's >50 years old.

Do a guided shopping trip to a huge, Kpop-blasting Korean grocer.  Ponder burning questions such as:
- What are the top 3 Korean tidbits?  Exactly why are they so popular?
- Which 2 Korean products will effortlessly zhuzh up your cooking?

In between, learn Amazing Facts About Korean Culture You Can Show Off To Your Friends Later.  Such as: the first kimchi wasn't spicy or even red!

Finish with a rare treat of traditional Mid-autumn Festival sweets, like Korean songpyeon rice cakes and strictly seasonal Chinese mooncakes.

- A minimum of 4 people are required for this activity to take place.
- Bookings close on 10th Sep.
