For cooking:

Cheju-do Haemul Chon, as the name tells us, stems from the Korean island Cheju in the Yellow Sea. A place where many Koreans spend their honeymoon because of the white blossom splendour of the buckwheat fields. Such a magic view that extensive festivities are devoted to it.

The gluten free buckwheat, often associated with Northern areas, has its roots in China, where this crop is grown for at least 2000 years. It was introduced to Europe not earlier than the 15th century. No wonder that people in China, Japan and Korea could make more of it than people in northern Europe like my countrymen the Dutch with their groat porridge and heavy pancakes. In Korea buckwheat noodles are made and also for instance this type of refined pancakes. Of course with something from the sea on it, and how clever to decorate the dark batter with eggs!
