Posted by webmaster Hit 413 Date 2018.03.14

Dear Korea CQ members,

I hope you are having a wonderful day.

On March 13, Korea CQ 25 visited the Hyundai Card Cooking Library in Apgujeong-dong.

H.E. Peteris Vaivars, Rina Okumura-Vaivara, Erwan Vilfeu, Patricia Vilfeu, Mehmet Gurulkan, Gulcan Gurulkan, Christophe Piganiol, Susan Ling, Yoon Jung Park, Uloff Munster, Patricia Munster, Dong Suk Park, Choi Jungwha, and Didier Beltoise attended this forum.

CQ members arrived at the green house on the 4th floor of the building and had time to catch up during the reception.


For the first program, members enjoyed the entrée courses; fresh vegetables from a local farm located in Namyang-ju, Gyeonggi-do province, persimmon with beet and Jamon, cod and potato croquette, oyster, spinach, oat risotto. The chef explained that most of the dishes were inspired by Spanish menus because she recently visited Spain.


After the entrée courses, the tour of the Hyundai Card Cooking library began.

The Hyundai Card Libraries series, design, travel and music, have become must-visit culture scenes in Korea, and the Cooking Library is their latest addition.

The Cooking Library offers an in-depth look into the craft of cooking, where the production, literature and experience of food come together.

Members appreciated that the library which has over 10,000 carefully-selected books on food and cooking, as well as kitchen spaces where visitors can cook or learn how to make dishes from professionals.

Everyone was also impressed by the 100 different spices, the important ingredients to cooking.


After the tour, members had a mini cooking class. Mr. Christophe Piganiol and Mr. Erwan Vilfeu made Arrabbiata pasta on behalf of Korea CQ members. The chef who helped with the cooking class explained that even if the same ingredients are used, the flavors differ depending on who made them.


Finally, everyone tasted the pasta with the roasted Korean beef as a main courses.

The delicious dinner time ended with a sweet Cheonhyehyang pie.


We would like to thank all members who attended. We would also like to give special thanks to Mr. Ted Chung Vice Chairman of Hyundai Card for inviting Korea CQ members for this unforgettable experience.

On April 17, Korea CQ will be having a lecture on 'Situation on the Korean Peninsula' by Dr. Cha Du Hyeogn, a Visiting Scholar at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies and a North Korea Study expert, at the Kuwaiti Ambassador's residence.

We are looking forward to our members’ active participation.

Thank you.
