The scent of pickled cabbage and chilies filled the lobby of the Diana Garden Resort as the hotel staged a Korean kimchi cooking demonstration for its many Asian guests.
Diana Group Managing Director Sopin Thappajug welcomed Korean chef Sunny Kim for the Jan. 24 show. Kim detailed the ingredients used to prepare kimchi before cutting the various vegetables into unique shapes and decorating each serving plate.
(L to R) The Diana Resort’s head chef Ittikorn Phusingh, Korean chef Sunny Kim and Diana Group MD Sopin Thappajug taste test the delicious kimchi.
The Diana Resort’s head chef Ittikorn Phusingh was the first to sample Kim’s creation and gave it two thumbs up before inviting the 20 audience members to try it.
Many of the hotel guests had some experience in either making or eating kimchi and seemed to enjoy learning how to prepare it from a professional.
