It’s Monday Giveaway time … on a Wednesday!
Here’s another treat for our Los Angeles readers, we are giving away two tickets to the L.A. premiere of “Kimchi Chronicles,” the long-awaited PBS show about Korean food and culture, to be held on Wednesday, July 6.
The brainchild of the lovely and talented Marja Vongerichten, who happens to be married to world-renowned chef Jean-Georges, “Kimchi Chronicles” is a 13-part series which will make its nationwide debut on July 7.
Our February 2011 feature about Marja and her new show describes it best:
Part documentary, part culinary adventure, this multi-episode journey takes viewers on a toothsome tour of South Korea—from Seoul to Busan to Jeju Island—with Vongerichten exploring the cuisine of the peninsula known for its spicy kick. Think Anthony Bourdain meets the Travel Channel, but with a curvier guide hosting.
One lucky winner and a friend will attend the private VIP screening at the CGV Cinemas in the heart of L.A.’s Koreatown, followed by a VIP reception in the Madang Courtyard. It’s a great space, we recently hosted the Hangover 2 after-party there!
To win tickets, please leave a comment telling us what your favorite Korean dish is and why. For an additional chance to win, simply retweet our @KoreAm tweet about the giveaway.
Winner will be picked at random unless someone comes up with something really funny.
The contest ends on Friday, July 1 at 5PM PST, please leave a valid email address that you check daily.
