Making special dishes for a holiday : Dumpling soup

 My food story is about ‘Making special dishes for a holiday : Dumpling soup’.

In Korea, Korean eat rice cake soup with dumplings on New year’s day. Since Korean think that they grow older when they eat this soup, it’s important to prepare a new year.

Usually, it takes really long time to prepare all ingredient. For this reason, all my family members help our mothers for it all day long. Men do cutting rice cake which is physically hard and women prepare various materials such as meat, tofu, onion ect. And then, all members start to make dumpling with prepared ingredient. This time is really funny and good to talk about their daily life.

Because of a cultural change from men-centered atmosphere to equal atmosphere, more and more works are shared equally for men and women in family.

Event of memorial serviceday

This presentation file is about event of memorial serviceday in korea.

There is a strict ( I think it is strict) rule in arranging food on table in memorial serviceday.

 Actually, many grown up girls who is going to marry soon, still do not know the rule. (Even they marry!)

 The thing is, it is really complicated. And it is slightly different depending on people’s home tradition and location.

Koreans think the red color drives out the ghost, so we never use the red color food at memorial table.

Even KIMCHI is the most representative food in Korea.

Also we do not use peach because of the belief that it is god’s food.

1st Food day!


SAMGYETANG is chicken broth with ginseng. The orginal one has more ingredients like ginseng, date and Astragalus. It is traditional summer food in korea. Becuse as you can see there are many traditional Oriental medicines from forest. (Forest is 65percent of total korean earth) And the medical ingredients help you to bear the hot and dry summer of korea. It is easy to see SAMGYETANG restaurant inkorea. And it is really popular food for foriegners since it has mild taste.
