Our good friend Tony Chang from Taiwan was also make his way after the Contest in Bangkok to Seoul, to ensure nor missing another opportunity to sample caviar, good food and wine, and meet some old an new friends. During the dinner Tony was Honored with the Title of executive Gourmet for Taiwan, and I would congratulate him for all he’s effort and time he has spent since become a member 4 years ago in Bangkok. With 5 new professional members to introduce at a Private Dining Room the Menu that was presented was superb and above of all our expectations. The 4 Korean Chefs and one pastry Chef went over there creativity and orchestred a nine course menu for the attending 26 guests plus the 5 chefs in an outstanding presentation, combination of flavors, colors, textures and different Korean Farmed Caviar from the upper Han river. The two Brothers Jake and Eric Dongsuk were assisted by some pretty female culinary Students from the AA Chefs, Chef Kim, Chef Jo and Chef Cho were busy preparing the great course one after another like a Swiss clock work, the service of the plaza Hotel team assisted under the watchfully eyes of chef Aiden, noticed every detail of the service and kitchen operation. A very large congratulation to the host and the 5 new members that are true cordon noirean and for sure will add a bonus to the standard of the presented dishes and the camaraderie we all had experienced during our stay in Seoul. A Special thanks also goes to the management of the Plaza Hotel, the Korean Chefs Association and AA chefs for their great support during this event and we are looking forward to the next exiting Cordon noir Caviar Dinner in Korea, as during the dinner already 3 persons were very interested to join our Gourmet club MB/20-9-16
