  1. 01Korean cuisine comes from a healthy and fresh food culture that embraces ‘Korea’s nature’.

    Korean cuisine reflects the nature of Korea. From fresh seasonal vegetables and herbs that can be enjoyed in various ways depending on the season, to healthy fermented foods that are aged according to nature's timetable by embracing the cold and heat, to various natural ingredients grown in the sea on three sides of the Korean peninsula, mountains and green fields, and special recipes for each region, Korean cuisine is healthy food nurtured by the sky, embraced by the earth, and made by people.

  2. 02Korean cuisine is a food of harmony and balance.

    It is largely based on serving rice, soup, and side dishes as one complete meal. The harmony of color and taste of the various dishes satisfies the five senses while eating, and each meal is nutritinoally balancend between carbohydrates, protein, and fiber in each dish to maintain healthy lifestyle.

  3. 03Korean food contains the philosophy of ‘Bibim’.

    ‘Bibim’ refers to the act of communicating with each other, sharing what is good, and filling in what is lacking. Bibimbap, a combination of rice, vegetables, herbs, meat, and fermented sauce, embodies the philosophy of bibim, which symbolizes harmony and balance, creating a perfect balance of taste and nutrition within a single bowl.

    ‘Mandu’, you have to take a bite to experience what's inside
    Mandu, which resemble a 'lucky pouch' that is given out on important holidays to share good fortune, are traditionally made and eaten together with the whole family on Lunar New Year to pray for luck and prosperity. Korean Mandu are known to be healthy as they allow you to easily consume enough nutrients even if you just eat one, since the thin wrapper is filled with plenty of minced meat and fresh vegetables. There are also more than one type of Korean dumplings, depending on the wrapper, the ingredients of the filling, the recipe, and the shape. For example, bibigo's 'Mandu', a modern reinterpretation of 'Mimandu', are in the shape of a sea cucumber, known as the ginseng of the sea, which used to be enjoyed in the Royal palace as a precious food. bibigo's 'Hansum Mandu', which are larger and filled to the brim, were made with the motif of reviving dumplings that Koreans used to make and eat to pray for good fortune on the first full moon day of the New Year. In both cases, you can easily enjoy the authentic taste of Korea at home.

    Korea's unique food culture lives and breathes in Mandu.
    Mandu are made out of a very thin wrapper that is filled with various ingredients such as vegetables and meat, and can be enjoyed by steaming, boiling, or frying them. Originally, these dumplings were enjoyed at feasts or ancestral rites, especially in winter. Nowadays, you can easily prepare them at home: You can make Mandu soup by simply boiling them in a broth of your choice, or you can have steamed or fryed Mandu and pair them with a dipping sauce. Yet another popular type of Korean Mandu that are enjoyed in the summer are called "Pyeonsu". They are filled with zucchini, bean sprouts, and beef and have a distinct square shape, and are served in chilled soup. In the past, nobles at royal palaces used to have half-moon-shaped dumplings called "Byungsi", sea cucumber-shaped "Mimandu", and "Hansum Mandu", in hopes that farming would go well and the number of rice bags would be plentiful, just like the dumplings on the first full moon day of the lunar year.
