Taste of Andong : Part 2
Lacking in food resources, Andong, ironically, is where Korea's oldest cook book, the first cook book in Hangeul, and a book on traditional liquor were compiled. In contrast, Jeolla Provinces are famous for their rich food culture, but have not produced any ancient cook books. We find the reason for Andong's ancient books in the "bong-jae-sa-jeob-bin-gaek" (performing ancient rites and serving guests) culture of this hometown of aristocrats and head families, and explore the rituals and customs of aristocrats.
