Jeannie will return to Seoul this month to further her work dedicated to pairing key Korean flavours with wine. Partnering with the modern Korean restaurant Bistro Seoul , Jeannie will be leading a masterclass and wine dinner with the theme: “Chili, Daenjang, Umami: Pairing Korean flavours with wine”. This is an extension of the food and wine pairing philosophies encapsulated in Jeannie’s multi-award winning book Asian Palate, which explores the unique regional cuisines of Asia in key culinary capitals by looking in-depth at local tastes, drinking cultures, and key flavours. Through this masterclass and wine dinner, Jeannie will utilise her understanding and appreciation of Korean cuisine and highlight the interaction between wine and chili paste, fermented soybeam flavours of daenjang and the subtle flavours of umami in Korean cuisine. Jeannie will lead participants on an epicurean journey to discover the impact of Korean seasonings and flavours on wine and how wine can enhance the traditional flavours of Korean cuisine. Wines featured at the event come from producers of the highest caliber from France, Germany and Italy. They include Pol Roger, Marchesi di Gresy, Fattoria Nittardi, Weingut Heitlinger, Schloss Johannisberg, Weingut Weiser-Künstler and Weingut Selbach-Oster.
