A Royal Touch to Kimchi 🎩
Did you know? The Royal Borough of Kingston declared 22nd November as official Kimchi Day in January 2023 – a first in Europe! This decision celebrates the 140-year diplomatic relationship between Korea and the UK and the vibrant Korean community in Kingston.
Adding to the royal flair, His Majesty the King humorously asked, “Will this kimchi blow my head off?” during a visit to New Malden. We promise it’s mind-blowing but in the best way possible! 😉
