Nature. This is where Chef Yang draws almost all of his inspiration from, and what guides his philosophy when it comes to food and its preparation. Korean cuisine, he believes, should taste as close to nature as possible, as well as keeping to the original flavours of the ingredients and make them shine through in all his dishes. In staying true to these sentiments, he further believes that Korean cuisine can be as effective as any medicine, literally food for the belly and for the soul.
Over 30 years of experience have taught Chef Yang how to bring about the best that his ingredients, herbs and spices have to offer, working mainly in distinguished establishments around his home country, South Korea.
This year, he brings his quintessential Korean creations to MIGF, the first time the cuisine has been featured in the Festival. Who knows? His dishes may have the power to heal an ailment that has proved elusive to other forms of medicine.
