The Korean Culinary Centre
A NEW education and experience center in Seoul, designed to be the main tourism promotion facility for South Korea, has opened since April.
The K-Style Hub is located near Myeongdong district and offers a range of hands-on programmes that can also cater to incentive groups and congress participants.
According to Alice Sim, a representative from the centre, the four-storey building, which originally housed Korea Tourism Organization’s headquarters, now showcases different aspects of South Korean culture, giving visitors a taste of a broad range of offerings.
A Korean Culinary Centre occupying the entire top floor of the hub allows guests to learn how to prepare local cuisine themselves. Up to 40 participants can be accommodated at any one time for sessions ranging from 100 minutes to two hours, depending on the type of food being prepared.
Other areas of the hub are comprised of a variety of information counters, virtual reality experiences and interactive exhibits on topics like medical tourism, K-pop culture and local artwork.
Entrance to the K-Style Hub is free, but registration is required for cooking classes.
