>> South Korea has cooked up a symbolic menu for this Friday's high stakes inter-Korea Summit. First up, Swiss rosti, a fried potato dish, which will be cooked with a Korean twist. That seems to be a nod to reports that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un lived in Switzerland as a child.

Though that's never been confirmed by the North. Main course, baked John Dory fish, a common dish in South Korea and President Moon Jae-in's home town, the seaside port city of Busan. More carbs are on the menu in the form of Pyongyang style cold noodles, or naengmyeon, served in a chilled meat broth.

It's signature fare from North Korea, and it will be cooked fresh on the day by a top chef from Pyongyang's Akyugon restaurant. It's considered a top eatery in the North Korean capitol, and has several branches overseas helping the regime earn badly needed hard currency. But the show piece of the feast will be a mango moose dessert featuring a map of a unified Korea, and its sparking political friction with Japan.

But when US president Donald Trump visited last year, Seoul sent a similarly chilly message through a grilled prawn dish sourced from waters near the same disputed islands.
