The seventh edition of the culinary event Taste of Paris will take place from 12 to 15 May at the Grand Palais ephémère in Paris, near the Champs-de-Mars. The Korean booth will offer soy soup noodles, Bugak (dried seaweed fries) and Jeon (vegetable, meat or seafood pancakes), with the participation of the three Buddhist monks of the Jogye order.
In particular, le moine Hongseung presents a new interpretation in French of the bouddhique coréenne cuisine with the support of chef Alexandra Didier from the French culinary school Le Cordon Bleu.
