This showcase is part of the brand’s World Chef Series

The newest collection under Chef-in-Box’s World Chef Series. For the first time ever, the brand will be unveiling Korean-style ready-to-eat (RTE) meals. While there are Korean RTE meals in the market, they are typically imported from overseas. Chef-in-Box has bucked this trend, engaging the award-winning Chef Kim Dong Suk to share his recipes, and then manufacturing the meals right here in Singapore for gourmands to enjoy fresh meals. Chef-in-Box’s offerings are also certified halal, so now gourmands of all ethnicities can enjoy convenient access and tuck into authentic Korean dishes!

Chef Kim began his culinary journey at the age of 18. In 2014, he became the youngest-ever president and jury member of the Bocuse d’Or, one of the world’s most prestigious cooking competitions. He helms the management team of the Korea Chefs Association, a subset of the World Association of Chefs, where he has won 17 trophies, 45 gold medals, 82 silver as well as 110 bronze awards in global competitions.

“This partnership with Chef-in-Box is a wonderful opportunity for my food to reach everyone outside Korea. With these RTE meals, gourmands will get to savour the true taste of Korea in every bite,” says Chef Kim. The dishes Chef Kim has curated for Chef-in-Box’s third instalment of World Chef Series are representative of Korean cuisine. When it comes to cooking, every household in Korea has its own recipes and interpretation of the dishes. Chef Kim will be showcasing his tried-and-tested recipes, and putting his own spin on the classics.

The Spicy Seafood with Rice (Haemul Deop Bap) should resonate with Singaporeans, who are known to be spicy-food lovers. For the Beef Bulgogi with Rice (So-Bulgogi & Bap), the chef has chosen to use thicker cuts of meat, upping the indulgence. The beef slices are marinated with Chef Kim’s family recipe for an authentic Korean flavour, and then stir-fried to perfection.

Around the world, the Bibimbap is one of the most recognisable Korean dishes. Chef Kim’s version comes with sautéed vegetables and is enlivened by gochujang (chilli pepper paste), soy sauce and doenjang (fermented soybean paste). Another dish that attests to the chef’s creativity is the Soy Chicken with Glass Noodle (Jjimdak & Dangmyun)Glass noodles (japchae) are usually served as a side, but the chef has featured these al dente and translucent sweet potato noodles as a main dish. It is accompanied with jjimdak — chunks of succulent chicken braised in soy sauce. The dish boasts a savoury, spicy and sweet flavour.
