K-Cook Delight is a campaign organized by Inspired Steps (, and sponsored by the Korean Food Foundation ( that aspires to spread global awareness of Korean culture through its cuisine.

People of diverse nationalities and ethnicities are encouraged to apply to participate in the event. Among these applicants, 30 individuals will be selected (10 professional chefs, 20 foreign residents) to participate in cooking classes that will take place every Saturday over a three-week period. During this time, they will learn how to cook some of Korea’s most well-known foods: pajeon (savory Korean pancake), bibimbap (mixed vegetables, beef and rice), and japchae (cellophane noodles stir-fried with vegetables). As they prepare each dish, participants will integrate the ingredients, flavors, and culinary traditions of their native countries, ultimately producing a creative new Korean dish on the first week of September. Afterwards, they will film themselves explaining their creation in their native language, place their dish on exhibit at the “Day-Restaurant” event, and participate in an International Exchange Party.

As a campaign started in Seoul, South Korea, K-Cook Delight hopes to spread beyond Asia, and become a worldwide event. In addition to being part of a campaign that is entertaining and creative, participants will also be at the forefront of a campaign aimed at expanding awareness beyond food, to include multiculturalism.
