There will also be a fun competition to see who can eat the noodles the fastest with a pair of chopsticks. They will also be giving out free samples of Kimchi for visitors to try Koreas iconic dish.

 

Free information on Koreas cuisine as well as general travel guidebooks and information will be available at the show.  An excellent publication titled The Wonderful World of Korean Food with recipes for many Korean dishes will be freely available at the Korea stand.
