A NORTH KOREAN website devoted to cooking has appeared on the Internet more than two years after it was first reported to have launched. The website of the Korean Association of Cooks offers hundreds of recipes for "housewives' convenience", an introduction to restaurants in North Korea and details of the cooking association. In addition to the recipes, the site also offers insights into the origins of the dishes.
North Korea's state media agency KCNA first reported the launch of "Korean Dishes" in March 2012 and again in January 2013, but both times it was not accessible outside Korea.
