A Tunnel of Persimmon Wine in Cheongdo

Let’s just get this out there…the wine tunnel is not what I expected. Let me take you through my dreams of what the wine tunnel would be. There would be staff to greet my friend Phil and I at the  “door” and they would show us to a table in a vast cavern of the tunnel. We would have proper menus and table service. There would be adults in attendance, each quietly enjoying the selection of persimmon wine and it would be glorious. Glorious. You know, more like a vineyard or winery.

|Korean| Goat Cheese

Meet my new Korean-organic-goat-cheese hookup! His name is Doug Huffer. He’s a foreigner. He owns Waeg Farm. And he and his wife make some of the most delicious cheese I’ve ever eaten! I am so excited to use this cheese in pretty much everything in the coming weeks!  Seriously. I’ve got so many things pinned on Pinterest just for the goat cheese I don’t know how I’ll get around to making them all…oh gawd…goat cheese… Goat cheese in Korea (like most real cheese) is imported and certifiably non-organic. For a small tube of goat cheese I could be out of 14,000 to 18,000 won. I bought 800 grams of goat cheese from Waeg Farm for 24,000 won including shipping. Here is an awesome article from the Korean Herald on Doug and the farm. Here is their Facebook page so you can check them out if you’re in Korea. If you want to order, just need to email them at: waegfarm@gmail.com. Tell them how many 200 gram containers of goat cheese you’d like. It’s 10,000 grams per container …
