That's the challenge Aurore and Yongnae took up with "Leche babines", which could be translated with "chop-licking". The Chebu-dong based Belgian-Korean duo set up a Facebook group to crowdsource suggestions and wishes from the community, took part to local events, and even had this small store in Tongui-dong (at the heart of Seochon sur Seine). "Leche babines" sell online a stimulating selection of food you can't easily find in Seoul: artichoke, fennel, leek, shallots, endives, green beans, asparagus, even rabbit meat!
I'm actually licking my chops right now, just visualizing all possibilities (now I even have olfactory illusions).
Enfin! What a relief! Last year, my pathetic attempt of growing leek succeeded only in feeding local magpies. Better let the pros handle it.
