Food and Wine Festival

Seoul is spicing up to be quite the culinary destination this autumn with the Park Hyatt Masters of Food and Wine festival held at Park Hyatt Seoul, October 29 to November 8. While the tradition of an annual food and wine festival was sparked more than twenty years ago, Park Hyatt’s celebration of its foodie roots is stronger than ever.  

This season’s event features a new selection of renowned Chefs and sommeliers. Each will host expertise-specific seminars and cook up a range of gastronomic masterpieces – from foie gras dishes, to Japanese, Korean and Thai dishes, and even pastries and desserts.

Highlights of the festival include Michelin-star executive chef Ulf Braunert of the Palace Luzern in Switzerland as well as Park Hyatt Seoul’s own executive chef, Stefano Di Salvo.

The culinary carnival kicks off with a special lunch and dinner presented by Chef Braunert on October 29 and a welcome cocktail reception on November 2. Hone your culinary knowledge the following evening in The Salon at the wine seminar with Hyatt Regency Incheon’s Sommelier. Or head to the asian cuisine cooking classes, where participants are schooled in the preparation of Asian recipes, foie gras dishes, Mediterranean cuisine, and more.  

Make sure to stroll on over to The Gallery Park Ryu Sook for the art gallery dinner complete with Korean art and Asian cuisine, and revel in the notes of an international vocalist as three chefs present Asian flavors at The Timber House bar. Masters of Food and Wine Seoul will culminate in a gala dinner, uniting world-class cuisine and wines.

Featured chefs of the event will include:

For the past three years, Masters of Food and Wine has been hosted by the Park Hyatt properties in Buenos Aires and Mendoza, highlighting South American cuisine and the ever-expanding Argentinean wine world. A spin-off of the festival was also held this past September at the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme.
