【ソウル(韓国)2019年6月28日PR Newswire=共同通信JBN】韓国寺刹料理の巨匠、チョン・クワン(正寛)師は「私はシェフではなく尼僧だ」と述べた。韓国寺刹料理は、Netflixのシリーズ、「シェフのテーブル」(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQiX4M07Kao )で紹介されてから有名になった。







「シェフのテーブル」ファンであれば、白羊寺(Baekyangsa Temple)が第1の選択となるだろう。そこでチョン・クワン師と共に寺刹料理を作れるかもしれない。津寛寺(Jingwansa Temple)も寺刹料理で有名だ。奉先寺(Bongseonsa Temple)では、ハスの葉で包んだ蒸し米を作ることができる。3つか4つの寺刹料理を作りたければ、桐華寺(Donghwasa Temple)が魅力的な場所となるだろう。

あまり時間がないなら、ソウルの観光名所の1つである仁寺洞に位置するKorean Temple Food Centerだけ訪れれば良い。ここでは英語で1日料理教室「Let's Learn Korean Temple Food(韓国寺刹料理を学ぼう)」を提供している。(info@templestay.com/ +82-2-733-4650)

レストランで本物の寺刹料理を食べたければ「バルコンヤン(Balwoo Gongyang)」が完璧な場所だ。ミシュラン1つ星レストランに3年連続で選ばれている。「バルコンヤン(鉢盂供養)」は元々、韓国仏教において伝統的な食事法を意味する。(eng.balwoo.or.kr/ +82-2-733-2081)

How food became a way to practice her Buddhism? If you like to know about her

philosophy, you may look into Korean temple food.

Temple food refers to the one monks and nuns eat at temples. However, this is a

narrow definition of Temple food. In Korean Buddhist, Temple food is considered

as one way to exercise Buddhist teachings. It includes all from growing food

ingredients to cooking and eating.

Buddhists hold reverence for all lives and embrace a harmony with nature. They

don't use meat nor fish, and any artificial flavor enhancer. Five pungent herbs

called oshinchae-green onion, garlic, leek, chive, and wild chive-are not

allowed to use. They use only seasonal vegetables and soybean paste and soy

sauce made by themselves at temples.

One good way to experience Temple food is to visit a temple and participate in

the Templestay program. Around 130 temples across Korea run Templestay programs

and some of the temples give a chance to make your own Temple food


If you're a fan of Chef's Table, Baekyangsa Temple would be your first option -

you may make Temple food with Ven. Jeong Kwan there. Jingwansa Temple is also

famous for temple food. At Bongseonsa Temple, you can make steamed rice wrapped

in a lotus leaf. If you want to make three or four Temple foods, Donghwasa

Temple will be an attractive place.

If you don't have enough time, just visit the Korean Temple Food Center located

in Insa-dong, one of the tourist attractions in Seoul. They provide the one-day

cooking class "Let's Learn Korean Temple Food" in English.(


If you want to have real Temple foods at a restaurant, "Balwoo Gongyang" is the

perfect place. It has been listed on Michelin's One-Star restaurant for three

consecutive years. "Balwoo Gongyang" originally means a traditional way of

eating in Korean Buddhism.(eng.balwoo.or.kr/+82-2-733-2081)

If you'd like to take care of your body and mind, visit Korea and experience

Temple food, as a journey to a healthier gourmet.
