Walking Lecture: Cooking Class on Korean Temple Cuisine

(Kimchi Dumplings & Sticky Rice-yam Pancake)

Lecturer: Venerable Hyungmin (Interpreter: Park Min Jung)




Korean temple food has a 1,700-year-old tradition with tastes that have been long-cherished. Korean Temple cuisine refers to all the food and drink consumed daily at Buddhist temples, food that is accompanied by gratitude for life and prayers for peace. From the cultivation of individual ingredients to the making of the food itself, the entire preparation process is regarded as part of the practice of Buddhism.


Temple cuisine is prepared with full devotion, much like the food that is offered to Buddha. All dishes are shared and eaten equally. The participants will take a cooking class comprised of two courses of temple cuisine with a Buddhist monk and an interpreter. All menus use natural ingredients that are in season.




Korean Temple Food Center is the first cultural complex in Korea that was established to spread the knowledge about Korean temple food. The Center provides various exhibitions, hands-on experiences, and educational programs.
