"Han Jeong Sik", a full -course Korean meal with a varied array of banchan (side dishes).
Korean cuisine is largely based upon rice, vegetables, and meats. Traditional Korean meals are noted for the number of side dishes (banchan) that accompany steam-cooked short-grain rice. Kimchi is served often, sometimes at every meal. Commonly used ingredients include sesame oil, doenjang (fermented bean paste), soy sauce, salt, garlic, ginger, pepper flakes and gochujang (fermented red chili paste).
Ingredients and dishes vary by province. Many regional dishes have become national, and dishes that were once regional have proliferated in different variations across the country.

Tteok Guk/年糕汤/떡국

Tteok Guk/年糕汤/떡국 Korean Rice Cake
Dear friends, what did you have for your breakfast on the first day of Lunar New Year ? In Korea, we have "Tteok Guk".
亲爱的朋友们,在农历新年的早晨,您是享用那一种美食作为早餐呢 ? 在韩国,我们在这一天早上,家家户户都会享用年糕汤,这年糕汤,在韩文是被称为 “ Tteok Guk ".
Tteokguk is a traditional Korean dish eaten during the celebration of the Korean New Year. The dish consists of the broth/soup (guk) with thinly sliced rice cakes (tteok - it can be called a kind of rice pasta). It is tradition to eat tteokguk on New Year's Day because it is believed to grant the consumer good luck for the year and gain a year of age. It is usually garnished with thin julienned cooked eggs, marinated meat.
The custom of having a bowl of tteokguk in the morning of New Year's Day to get a year older, and the custom of saying "How many bowls of tteokguk have you eaten?" to ask a person's age.
The broth is generally made by simmering the main protein (beef, chicken, pork, pheasant, seafood) in a ganjang seasoned stock. The stock is then strained to clarify the broth and long cylinder-shaped garaetteok are thin-sliced diagonally and boiled in the clear broth. Garnish is added before serving; the garnish may vary by region and personal taste, but usual staples are pan-fried julienned egg yolks and whites, gim and spring onions.

韩国人在农历新年年初一的早晨,举家大小一起享用年糕汤。 这年糕汤的主要材料是用被切成薄片的圆形年糕,韩国人称它为 "garaetteok"(是用米作为材料),再加上上汤。这上汤,可分为牛肉汤,鸡汤,煮汤,雉鸡汤,或海鲜汤. 同时也配上一些其他的佐料,如饺子,肉片,鸡蛋或紫菜等。
吃了年糕汤,就意味着长大了一岁。若有人问你 “ 吃了几碗年糕汤?”,也即表示是问您 “几岁了”。。。

Abalones /鲍鱼/전복

Abalones /鲍鱼/전복 Seafood

Abalones,  received as a gift from a friend. My youngest daughter is screaming while she notices that the abalones are still alive ^-^ ^-^.
鲍鱼,收到了朋友送来的礼物。我家小女儿,当她见到了那活生生的鲍鱼,惊讶的叫了起来 ^-^ ^-^..

Haliotis, common name abalone.This genus used to contain 6 subgenera. These subgenera have become alternate representations of Haliotis. The genus consists of small to very large edible sea snails, marine gastropod molluscs.

The shells of abalones have a low, open, spiral structure, and are characterized by having several open respiratory pores in a row near the shell's outer edge. The thick inner layer of the shell is composed of nacre (mother-of-pearl), which in many species of abalone is highly iridescent, giving rise to a range of strong changeable colors, which make the shells attractive to humans as decorative objects, in jewelry, and as a source of colorful mother-of-pearl.

The exterior of the shell is striated and dull. The color of the shell is very variable from species to species which may reflect the animal's diet. The iridescent nacre that lines the inside of the shell varies in color from silvery white, to pink, red and green-red to deep blue, green to purple.

The animal shows fimbriated head-lobes. The side-lobes are also fimbriated and cirrated. The rounded foot is very large. The radula has small median teeth, and the lateral teeth are single and beam-like. There are about 70 uncini, with denticulated hooks, the first four very large. The soft body is coiled around the columellar muscle, and its insertion, instead of being on the columella, is on the middle of the inner wall of the shell. The gills are symmetrical and both well developed
By weight, approximately 1/3 of the animal is edible meat, 1/3 is offal, and 1/3 is shell

鮑魚,古稱鳆,又名鏡面魚九孔螺明目魚將軍帽,(美式英文abalone, 英式英文ormer)是一種海生軟體動物,屬於腹足綱鮑科的單殼海生貝類。棲石質河岸,以藻類為食。
鮑魚除了是海中的软体动物外,亦是中國傳統的名貴食材,古稱鰒魚,山珍海味中的一種。漢朝王莽就愛吃鳆鱼。曹操喜欢吃鳆鱼,曹操死后,曹植曾向徐州刺史臧霸要二百只來祭祀。 鮑魚通常在水溫度稍低的海底出產。出產地有日本北部、中國東北部、广东南海北部湾、北美洲西岸、南美洲南非澳洲等地
