Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Kimchi, a spicy and pungent blend of fermented Napa cabbage, radish, red chilies, garlic and salt, is a popular side dish in the Korean peninsula. Each year, South Koreans consume nearly 1.45 million tons of kimchi. On the occasion of Seoul Gourmet 2010 held last October, a Korean official waxed eloquent about fermentation, and about his plans to popularize kimchi and other Korean foods around the world. The renowned French chef Michel Troisgros, who was attending the event, told the man "I think you have to stop talking about fermentation. It is not sexy" ( 1) . (Mr. Troisgros, of course, was completely forgetting that his baguettes and wines also owed their existence to fermentation, a process that was refined by his fellow countryman, Louis Pasteur).
