Royal court cuisine, the essence of the Korean food culture, is made with the best ingredients, exceptional culinary techniques, and the devotion of its chefs. Hwang Hae-sung inherited the art of preparing royal cuisine from Han Hui-sun, a royal court lady who prepared meals for King Gojong and King Sunjong, the last two kings of the Joseon Dynasty. Han Hui-sun was later designated as the 1st Royal Culinary Art Master in 1971 when the royal cuisine of the Joseon Dynasty was proclaimed the 38th Important Intangible Cultural Property of Korea. When Han passed away, Hwang Hye-seong succeeded her and took the title of the 2nd Royal Culinary Art Master.
