Chief Monk Kyeho said she accumulated her culinary know-how by having to cook for venerable monks such as Ven. Seongcheol, who used to stay at the Jinkwan Temple. With the introduction of the temple stay program when Korea co-hosted the 2002 FIFA World Cup, the broader public was introduced to temple food. Because of the virtual non-taste and lack of ohshinchae and animal proteins such as meat, seafood and egg, not everyone became a fan of temple food. But well-known experts such as Monk Daean and Monk Seonjae at the Jangan Temple in Bundang have published books on temple food, and as healthy eating continues to spread in Korea and the world, temple food could become more popular.
