SongpyeonRice cakes steamed in pine needles 송편

This recipe is a very special one, made for a very special occasion in Korean culture. It’s rice cake called songpyeon, which Koreans make for Chuseok, the Korean harvest moon festival (although you can also make them any time you want). The cakes are a little sweet, chewy, and nutty, with a subtle pine tree flavor. They take some time and effort to make but are totally worth it, and not to mention colorfully beautiful!

Roasted chickenTongdak-gui 통닭구이

This traditional Korean roasted chicken was the standard in the country before fried chicken took over. It was restaurant food, cooked on a rotisserie.

Classic recipe

Pickled radishChicken-mu 치킨무

For me, this pickled radish is essential for enjoying any kind of Korean fried chicken. Tiny cold radish cubes, pickled in sweet, sour, and just a little salty brine are the perfect side dish for it. The recipe is so easy, it’s barely a recipe, but you don’t want to miss these pickles when feasting on your chicken and beer with friends! Geonbae!
