Korean Temple Food with Venerable Beop Song



Le Cordon Bleu London were recently joined by Buddhist nun and celebrated chef Venerable Beop Song for a demonstration of Korean Temple Food in partnership with the Korean Cultural Centre UK.

A renowned chef and cookbook author, Beop Song became a Buddhist nun under the tutelage of Venerable Seongkwan in 1996. She has refined her practice of temple cooking with the guidance of master monks and nuns who have a deep foundational knowledge of the cuisine.

Venerable Beop Song demonstrated a series of seasonal plant-based dishes that illustrate the care and thought that goes into and is characteristic of temple food. The theme for the event was dishes using root vegetables and seaweed, including recipes for Korean yam porridge, pumpkin and sea lettuce soup and lotus root and radish pancakes.
