When Sardinia and South Korea meet in the kitchen

Sardinia and South Korea celebrate the new agreement on collaboration in the food sector with a plate that unites the Italian and the Eastern traditions. Here is the chicken recipe stuffed with kimchi

On one side there is Sardinia, with its incredible territory and those good table products that all of us know. On the other hand, there is South Korea, a country with no doubt fascinating, revolutionary technologies and culinary traditions still largely to be discovered. Two extremely diverse realities, but nowadays seem a little less distant thanks to the Food Collaboration Agreement just signed by the Korean Food Foundation, a public organization engaged in the promotion of Korean food and food industry, and Aspal, the Sardinian agency for active labor policies.

A Memorandum of Understanding that will develop a co-operation program for the next three years, involving chefs and culinary experts. For the Italian team, it will be an opportunity to discover or rediscover a truly unique international cuisine, made up of slow-moving traditions, great knowledge of raw materials and a lot of attention to health.

Already because the Hansik kitchen, so called, takes full advantage of the ancient practice of natural fermentation of foods, through which the foods take on an intense and complex flavor over time. To begin to understand and love this tradition you can start from two basic elements: kimchi, a vegetable dish – especially Chinese cabbage – let it ferment with abundant spices, including spicy chili and ginger; And the jang, the characteristic fermented sauce, with its ganjang version (obtained from soy beans), doenjang (soy sauce) and gochujang (red chili peppers).

So, under the event “One Summer Night with Hansik” organized in Milan by the Korean Food Foundation, chef Mauro Seu wanted to give us an example of a possible encounter between the Italian and Korean tradition. He made it by offering his chicken breast stuffed with Kimchi, spinach and ricotta in Mediterranean sauce, of which we give you the recipe below.
