Jeju Bibimbap Festival!
( Official Jeju Tourism Organization events; May 1st~ June 1st )
Bibimbap (Korean pronunciation: [pibimbap]) is a signature Korean dish. The word literally means “mixed meal.” Bibimbap is served as a bowl of warm white rice topped with namul (sautéed and seasoned vegetables) and gochujang (chili pepper paste). A raw or fried egg and sliced meat (usually beef) are common additions. The ingredients are stirred together thoroughly just before eating. It can be served either cold or hot.
Vegetables commonly used in bibimbap include julienned cucumber, zucchini, mu (daikon), mushrooms, doraji (bellflower root), and gim, as well as spinach, soybean sprouts, and gosari (bracken fern stems). Dubu (tofu), either plain or sautéed, or a leaf of lettuce may be added, or chicken or seafood may be substituted for beef. For visual appeal, the vegetables are often placed so that adjacent colors complement each other.
Jeju Tourism Organization is now a sponsor of ‘Bibimbap Festival’ in Jeju island. Korean volunteers will teach foreign visitors how to make and eat Bibimbap. It is totally free but only one chance for a person. The festival opens at 10am until 6pm at Jeju International Airport conference area. Please feel free to come and join!
