Pyeongchang Local Cuisine to celebrate Olympics 2018!! YAY!!
Pyeongchang Local Cuisine with Local Ingredients
- POTATO PANCAKES (Gamjajeon 감자전) – Potatoes are a special produce in the mountain areas of Gangwon province near Pyeongchang so it’s definitely part of Pyeongchang local cuisine. Back in 2013, when I decided to grow colored potatoes in my dad’s farm in Korea (Read more here – Farming anyone?), I visited the beautiful Daegwanryeong 대관령 area to buy seed potatoes for my farming venture. I had a great time growing them and selling them although I thought I would almost die in the summer heat!! I made these beautiful Gamjajeon using ugly purple potatoes that were leftover.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my list of Korean foods that make up Pyeongchang Local Cuisine. Let’s enjoy this Winter Olympics with these wonderful local foods from Pyeongchang!
GO KOREA! GO USA!!
