SEOUL, Sept. 28 (Korea Bizwire) – For three days, a select number of New Yorkers will get to experience South Korea’s traditional Buddhist temple cuisine in the Big Apple.
Titled “Korean Templestay and Temple Food Culture Week”, the event will be held at Astor Center in Manhattan. The biennial event, which is organized by the Cultural Corps of Korean Buddhism, was first held in 2010. This year’s focus is to promote the upcoming 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.
At 7 p.m. each evening, a Buddhist temple food meal will be prepared for invited guests hailing from America’s political, financial, artistic, cooking and media sectors. Potatoes, buckwheat, and corn from Gangwon Province, the provincial home of Pyeongchang, have been specially flown in for the event.
Temple cuisine seminars will be held at the Natural Gourmet Institute and at the Culinary Institute of America by a member of the Buddhist monks delegation.
In five temples near New York, a temple stay event that includes tea time, cooking and meditation will be held until September 30.
