Aussie Chef Darren Vaughan and I had an opportunity to partake in the special ‘Made in Korea’ dinner series at the Grand Intercontinental Hotel in Gangnam.  I was mostly impressed with the first course which was makoli and dried kimchi and dried gogooma (Korean sweet potato).  It was the perfect way to start off the evening!

starters-makoli rice wine with dried kimchi and korean sweet potato...this was actually my favorite in the whole 'made in korea' series!
