2014 Seoul Kimchi Making & Sharing Festival


The Seoul Metropolitan Government is hosting the 2014 Kimchi Making and Sharing Festival. The festival was organized with the purpose of promoting and revitalizing “kimjang culture,” which was registered as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2013 but has been gradually disappearing from the lives of Koreans.

Kimjang is a traditional Korean event where kimchi is made and shared. Listed as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage, it is a unique part of Korean food culture.
Kimjang is the process of preparing and preserving large amounts of kimchi to last through the winter. Kimchi is a spicy vegetable dish made with unique Korean seasonings and seafood and preserved in a unique way. According to historical records, Koreans were eating kimchi as far back as 760 years ago. Transcending class and regional differences, kimchi is a staple of almost all Korean meals. A bowl of rice and kimchi is all that is needed to make a simple meal. However, kimchi is a dish that is always present, even at the most luxurious banquets.
