Le Strade della Mozzarella – Sang Hoon on Foodpairing

For the yearly event of Le Strade della Mozzarella, Sang Hoon was asked to create his very own interpretation of a Mozzarella dish. Degeimbre cleverly combines Mozzarella with kimchi (fermented cabbage), the national specialty of his home country Korea.

The dish comprises a variety of radishes, artichokes, violets and yarrow leaves in a broth of kimchi and Mozzarella, creating an unexpected yet unique western-Asian fusion.
