At Taste of Korea on February 1st, 2011, Bann restaurant played host to a family-style Korean New Year’s lunch in Midtown. Working with the Korean Food Foundation to promote Korean cuisine here in the States, the event served traditional favorites like Tteokguk, a rich beef broth topped with ribbons of egg, seaweed and tender medallions of Korean rice cakes. The dish symbolizes prosperity for the New Year and is a personal favorite of television food personality Kelly Choi, who made an appearance at the event. — Rachel Tucker

Who doesn’t love crispy rice? This is a wonderful side dish to make year- round—crunchy, light, and flavorful. Serve with Savoy Slaw with Lemongrass & Lime Dressing or alongside your favorite main dish. I cover the rice with a few paper towels as it cooks to absorb excess moisture, which helps to create a golden crust on the bottom of the rice.
Here’s a soup traditionally eaten at Seollal, the celebration of the Korean New Year. It’s easy to make, and an anchovy stock gives this soup a subtle richness and body. If anchovies aren’t to your liking, however, feel free to substitute any other kind of stock.Although some of the ingredients can be hard to find, there’s not a whole lot of work left once you do. Chewy rice cakes, made from glutinous rice flour and water, can often be found vacuum-sealed in the refrigerated section of Asian supermarkets, or you can try online. For the dumplings, you can buy frozen dumplings at the store, or if you feel like making them from scratch, you can check out our recipe for Korean Mandu. — Will BudiamanClick here to see Celebrate the Korean New Year.Click here to see The Ultimate 1-Pot Meal Roundup.
