During the pandemic, daily meals of Vietnamese must not only be enjoyable but also safe and healthy. Understanding the concerns of the families, aT has held a K-Food cooking class, delivering nutritious and flavourful recipes made with South Korean products. In two sessions, students experienced cooking and enjoyed unique dishes made from Korean ingredients imported directly to Vietnam.

The main dish is Cheese Tteokbokki with Korean Bell Peppers, featuring chewy Korean rice cakes smothered in a sweet and spicy sauce and molten cheese. The addition of Korean Bell Peppers not only level up your tteokbokki, but also boosts the nutrition as this pepper is rich in vitamins A, C, and fiber, all of which are beneficial to the skin and weight loss. After the main dish is full of flavor, everyone's taste buds are balanced with a light, mild dish. The heart of this dish is Doraji root, which is high in fiber, alkaline in minerals and vitamins, good for those who consume a lot of acidic foods. The feast of sensory is perfected with Korean Dried Red Apple Honey Tea, which can help to relax the mind and treat insomnia.

Besides, aT also displayed and introduced Korean specialties with two primary categories: K-Quarantine and K-Forestry. K-Quarantine is a group of products censored according to the K-Quarantine Model – the international standard jointly pushed forward by a consultative group composed of related Korean government departments. They have high nutritional content and are safe for humans. This category’s products such as Korean Bell Pepper, Korean Tomato, and Korean Crispy Persimmon, are now widely available in Vietnam and easily accessible in the supermarkets. Meanwhile, K-Forestry products such as Dried Red Apple, Pomegranate, Doraji Root, Oriental Raisins, and Deodeok are gaining popularity across the world due to their miraculous health benefits.
