Because my Koean professor is the awesomest professor in the whole world, she treated Anette and me to a two-day trip to Jeonju, where we stayed in a traditional Korean guesthouse, visited one of the best restaurants serving traditional cuisine, where we tried another version of bibimbap and many forms of ginseng. We were also able to take part in a lecture about food trends and cooking lessons at the Culinary institute, where we met 2 lovely Malaysian chefs. And were treated to more food.
And exciting news - the Culinari institue will be having a promotion: international students can apply for a scholarship to study Korean cuisine for a month. The tuition fees will be decreased to only 500 Eur. So for all chefs and culinary science students out there who can take a month off - this is a unique opportunity.
We started eating already on the way to Jeonju - the professor bought us chestnut-filled cookies and grilled squid.
The best restaurant in Jeonju
Ultra popular pub in Jeonju serving pollock with serve-it-yourself beer.
Restaurant where we had breakfast...
But before that, a little morning walk
And back to breakfast - the restaurant has unlimited side dishes, and serves one day old kimchi, which is so huge (since it's radish kimchi), that you have to pierce it with your chopsitcks to eat it - that's pretty much the only food that you are supposed to pierce through with your chopsticks.
And kongnamul gukbap - rich in alanin and therefore great hangover food.
Together special drink related to makgeolli.
Lunch - pancakes and clam soup.
