Last month, I was invited to an event organised by CJ Korea one of the largest food companies in Korea. They found me through Google (how did we ever survive without the internet?!) and at the time it sounded like some kind of some product promotion. CJ Korea is also known as Cheil Jedang. When I was growing up, Cheil Jedang (제일 제당) was known for selling sugar, however over time they expanded to other types of Korean food.
When I realised CJ Korea was Cheil Jedang, I was very excited and honored to be invited by a such a reputable Korean company and be a part of the event. Different food bloggers were invited to experience Singapore food made with Korean ingredients. I was so excited that when I got home I called my parents to tell them all about it! 🙂
All Fairprice stores are now carrying a lot of CJ products and Cold Storage also carry their frozen dumplings. I find these days that it is getting easier to access Korean ingredients and it is much cheaper than buying from Korean grocery stores. I have tried most of their products and I highly recommend them – especially the dumplings!
To celebrate Chinese New year, I am giving away $50 worth of their products. All you have to do is email me a photo and short description (1 sentence) of a Korean dish you cooked using one of CJ’s ingredients. Please email to email@example.com by 20 March 2011. The most mouth watering and delicious sounding entery will win the goodie bag. This giveaway is only available to Singapore residents.
