3.16.11 Dolsot Bibimbap

There are many things we are looking forward to in Korea, but the food is very high on the list. Jeonju is known for its cuisine, and it is also known as "the hometown of bibimbap." Bibimbap is a traditional dish made with meat, egg, and fried vegetables on a bed of rice with pepper sauce. Dolsot bibimbap is served in a heated stone or iron bowl so it continues to cook at the table - in this version the egg is sometimes put on raw, and it cooks as you stir it in. This dish is one of the first things we plan to try once we get there!
