I will be traveling internationally from South Korea to return home (South America) with a connection in France (Korean Air -> Air France). I intend to bring some souvenirs, one of which is a pot of Korean kimchi, which I was intending to bring on together with the rest of my carry-on luggage, but I'm not sure if that is allowed.
I did some research on bringing food preserves on board but unfortunately most of my findings deals with frozen or solid food, none of which I believe approaches the "preserved" nature of store-bought kimchi that comes in airtight plastic jars.
Am I allowed to bring food preserves with oil / vinegar like kimchi on board with the rest of my carry-on luggage on a flight to Europe? Or should I stow it in my checked luggage?
