Recently, a team of specialists and researchers revived 45 ancient Korean royal dishes from the Joseon Dynasty and has reproduced them for the public to try and enjoy.

There are oyster dumplings, grilled honeyed deodeok, a mountain herb with edible roots, along with Tsnapper cooked with mushrooms. These are all traditional Korean dishes that appear in an recipe book written around three hundred years ago.

The recipes, which have been compiled into a 200-page book, have reinvented the traditional dishes into modern meals for people to try.

Yoo Sun-mi, Researcher at National Academy of Agricultural Science said, “Reproducing these recipes is a good chance to globalize Korean traditional food from 300 years ago. They are both beautiful and nutritious.”

These revived recipes that showcase the taste and traditions unique to Korea are expected to help spread the excellence of Korean cuisine, as well as accelerate the globalization of Korean food.
