Tuscany of Korea: Disappearing Food Heritage, ‘Jayeom’ (2 hours from Seoul, Taean Peninsula) - 1 day tour
On Korea’s beautiful Taean Peninsula – which is famous for its fresh food - farms, mountains and the sea come together unforgettably. Harvests from the land and sea provide a bounty of fresh, varied seafood and top-quality vegetables. Many Korean chefs say these vegetables are the highest quality in all of Korea.
This tour takes you out into the Taean Peninsula to visit farms, a local market, a stunning mudflat, and the fast-disappearing food heritage of traditional salt known as ‘Jayeom’, named by Slow Food as the ‘Ark of Tasts’. This full-day and 1night stay tour to the heartland of Korean cuisine includes lunch and an unbelievably fresh seafood dinner. It’s a cultural and culinary experience you’ll never forget.
