Do we hear that the Madam (or the Daughter) of Your Excellency is very well versed in culinary knowledge and skills and probably also in the traditional Korean cuisine?

And also, why pass up the good opportunity for her to win a much-coveted, prestigious Plaque of Citation (shown above)?

Here is a good opportunity for the Madam to further enhance the good image of your country to the Korean people by taking part in this most worthy program and exhibiting her cooking skills, which are among the highest virtues for ladies in Korea.
