[tweetmeme source=”Jaehoonkorea”…lunar-calendar/]

 Jeongwoldaeboreum(정월대보름) (also called just “Daeboreum”) means the Biggest Full-Moon Day in a year. The day is decided by Lunar Calendar. Jeongwoldaeboreum is 15th of January by Lunar Calendar, and this year (2010), 28th of February is the Jeongwoldaeboreum.

Jeongwoldaeboreum is the First Moon of the year, so we wish our health, luck and love.  Especially we eat so many cooked potherbs with Rice mixed with the five cereals for our health.

Firstly, like I said (even though it’s “wrote”) we eat Rice mixed with the five cereals. There are Beans, Adzuki beans(Red beans), Barley, Sorghum and Millet in Ogokbap(Rice mixed with the five cereals in Korean name). They are all good for Health! You should eat them in Korea at least once hehe.

Secondly, it’s Yakbap! Everyone, even a kid would love it! It’s made of Rice , Nuts and Taffy liquid. It’s really delicious, you can have it as a snack! It tastes sweet, and if you eat them with a cup of tea, it would be perfect! In the Yakbap, there are many nuts, also pine nuts, jujubes and so on! It makes Yakbap more delicious and sweeter.

Mandu(Korean Dumpling) made me full XD

Have you ever heard of “Mandu”?

Mandu are dumplings in Korean cuisine. First brought to Korea by the Mongols, they are similar to what are called pelmeni and pierogi in some Slavic cultures. The name is a cognate to the names of similar types of meat-filled dumplings in Central Asia, such as Turkish manti, Kazakh manty, and Uzbek manti. It is also a cognate with the Chinese mantou, although mantou is a steamed bun rather than a dumpling.

In Korean cuisine, mandu generally denotes a type of filled dumplings similar to the Mongolian buuz and Turkish mantı, and some variations are similar to the Chinese jiaozi and the Japanese gyoza. If the dumplings are grilled or fried, they are called gunmandu (군만두). Mandu are usually served with a dipping sauce made of soy sauce and vinegar.

Do you know much about Korean Food? I heard that there’s a Korean food restaurant in NY. It’s pretty cool, isn’t it? Buchimgae is a traditional Korean food made of Flour, Spring Onion, Squid and so forth. As you guess, Kimchi Buchimgae is the buchimgae which has Kimchi on it. It’s really delicious, you should eat someday. The reason I post about Kimchi Buchimgae is that My Mother made it for me. I was really hungry, but it was 1:30 A.M. so I couldn’t find anything. And then, I found Kimchi Buchimgae which my mother made! I thought I should introduce a really delicious Korean food called “Kimchi Buchimgae” for you!

This is the video introducing How to make Kimchi Buchimgae ( Not by Me hehe:) )
