Chuseok - Korean Thanksgiving

Last week was Chuseok (추석), Korean Thanksgiving. It's a time when Koreans are supposed to return to their hometown, eat with their family, and pay their respects to their elders and ancestors.  Unfortunately, living in Nunavut, we were too far away to visit our hometown or to visit our ancestors' gravesites (which are in Asia and Europe).  Instead, we invited some friends over to our home and had a great big Korean feast.

first course: 김밥 kimbap maki rolls

해물전 - seafood pancakes

두부 김치찌개 - kimchi stew

갈빚찜 - galbi braise beef short ribs

잡재 - glass noodles
