the food episode – SemiPermanent

As explained a couple of posts ago the blogging has slightly fallen apart due to the project Jen is filming; SemiPermanent Seoul.

What has been really great about it has been discovering new places and people and there has also been some great feedback from people who are pleased to see something positive about Seoul in English. I’m not going to regularly post them up here as, well, they are weekly and aren’t really about food. However, episode 3 – Live to Eat – is solely about food. So here it is. It features one of our best friends (Sarah Lee/ Seoul in the City) working at our favourite Korean restaurant (Bean Table) and some other odds and ends.

Episode 3: “Live to Eat” from Semipermanent on Vimeo.

The reason I love Bean Table is that the head chef is Korean and young and he isn’t cooking Western food. Instead, despite the low cultural status accorded to Korean food in Korea and the fact that locals won’t pay good money for traditional food, he is doing inventive, organic cuisine here in Seoul.

PS the header picture has nothing to do with the food episode or Bean Table and is actually one of the most atmospheric places to get traditional Korean food from not young chefs (i.e. old Korean grandmothers)
