seoul food week 2010

Seoul Food Week 2010 was held at Coex on November 18th-21st.  Over 600 companies participated in the exhibition, with more than 80,000 domestic and overseas visitors!  The purpose of this exhibition was that at least 6 kinds of food fairs will be held simultaneously so that exhibitors and visitors will be able to learn a variety of information about general food, agro stock, rice, food packing, kitchen machinery, hotel & restaurant, etc. under one roof.

I stopped by for a few hours with some chefs, and was only able to hit a few of the expos.  Of course, my favorite (or shall I say all of our favorites) was the Makgeoli (Korean rice wine) expo! How can you resist the unlimited samples! Best part was tasting all the ones that are not out in the market yet.  I was fortunate to receive a free bottle from one of the vendors, which I thoroughly enjoyed:) A smile usually works...
