Last weekend the Jeju Food Culture Festival in Jeju City put some of the island’s traditional foods on show. If you couldn’t make it, we have some photos of these culinary delights for you.
What is striking is how color and presentation come together on the table and on the plate. This is not uncommon in traditional cuisine the world over, but for this selection of dishes, both the rustic and the elegant elements of Jeju food come to the fore.
Did you know? If you’d like to try some of the dishes you see here, the very best way is to ask a Jeju friend to recommend a restaurant in your area. But if you’re just visiting and don’t have someone to ask, there’s always the Korea Travel Hotline (toll free 02-1330 or 064-1330) where someone (available languages are English, Chinese and Japanese) can look online for restaurants serving traditional Korean or Jeju dishes.
