Contemporary Korean cuisine ‘Joo Ok’
by Chef Shin Chang-ho
Joo Ok’s cuisine captures the essence of Korea’s four seasons, based on fermented jang sauces and vinegars, the pillars of Korean cuisine.
Perilla oil pressed from seeds harvested in Chef Shin’s mother-in-law’s vegetable garden in Jinju, and some 30 varieties of homemade vinegar, brewed using proprietary recipes, are the stars of Joo Ok’s cuisine.
