Back in June 2013, we launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund an exciting documentary project about Korean food. With the support of our backers and our friends at Korea Foods Ltd, our documentary dream became a reality! Together with Director and Cinematographer Adam Hobbs we shot across South Korea and London to showcase the colourful flavours of Korean cuisine to you all.
This three part mini series written and produced by Joo Lee, Co-Founder of KORRITO and filmed by Cinematographer Adam Hobbs, explores the past, present and future of Korean cuisine.
Funded by Kickstarter and sponsored by Korea Foods Co. Ltd, the documentary showcases the flavours of Korean food from beautiful South Korea but also charts the growing scene in London, with views from celebrity chef and Sunday Times Food writer Gizzi Erksine; Head chef of Smokehouse and Korean food connoisseur Neil Rankin; and the wise Godfather of the UK food scene, Roy Ackerman CBE.
Join Joo as she journeys back to South Korea to sample and savour the exciting food of her homeland. The story concludes in London where Korean food is beginning to make an impact on the thriving street food scene. Joo will share with you the seductive flavours of Korean cuisine through amazing encounters and show you why Korean food really is the next big thing.
