Cooking in the park is something that you may have noticed in South Bank and New Farm. And yes, they’re cooking up something delicious. Get to know Jaehoon Rieu as he cooks his way to the hearts of park goers.
During the time that we got into contact with Jaehoon Rieu with regards to a Korean barbeque report and inquired how he’d rather deal with the cooking food – using the best smokers just like you would certainly do in a diner, or even on a hot plate inside the park – he did not think twice.
Rieu responded with glee. He said that everything you do when cooking outdoors has to be about fun, spending time with friends, and just cooking the best barbeque. He added that Korean barbeque is about having fun with good friends and great food.
You might have seen Rieu and his team on a lazy afternoon in the parks of South Bank and New Farm, sometimes around the Roma Street Parkland. They grill the best pork belly in town that students love to hang around to have a taste of the best kimchi, roasted pork belly, and some beer to wash it down. It’s like bringing the taste of Korea to Australia.
The People Behind Great Tasting Grilled Food
Rieu is a student but at the same time, he is also an artist in his field of art – cooking. He had a recent art training that includes visual art, performing arts as well as video works. But he is more drawn to good food because of its multi-sensory knowledge, he’s used it as a powerful tool to instruct kids to interact on a much deeper level using their creative passions.
Rieu said he enjoyed using various ingredients to share his knowledge to local children. His approach is far more unique. Using food in art doesn’t only give visual but also offers smell, touch, and taste which is everything about art. Food preparation is an art that many people appreciate.
His methodology and his love for food preparation and food art land Rieu a job at a restaurant in Brisbane. The art of cooking and grilling food is lucrative in the real world of business. In fact, Rieu is just among the many food artists who have gained success in their field by just doing what they love to do and embrace it.
