- "Soups & Stews cannot be missed on the Korean table"
Soups and stews, which are served in Korea at every meal, are a basic component of the traditional Korean table setting, and are made by simmering various ingredients such as meat, seafood, vegetables, and seaweed for a long time.
'Kuk' are broths made by simmering the best fresh ingredients in water while 'Tang' or soups have a slightly thicker consistency and are made with many ingredients. Lastly 'Jjigae', or stews, are made by simmering various ingredients for a long time in a relatively small amount of broth.
Typical examples include seaweed soup, which Korean mothers eat before and after childbirth, and also most Koreans eat on their birthday, Kimchi stew, and soybean paste stew, which can be enjoyed anytime and anywhere.
