Description

April 4, 2019 - Kimchi and soju are staples of daily life in Korea and tend to represent the cuisine for foreigners. Though kimchi and soju are strongly associated with Korea, their history has remained elusive. Cambridge's Michael D. Shin delves into the origins of these foods by looking at the eating and drinking culture of the Joseon period. This gives us a fuller picture of the life of the peasantry during that time, helping us to understand what makes kimchi and soju so characteristically Korean. This talk introduces the book Everyday Life in Joseon-Era Korea, which presents aspects of the period from the perspective of the peasantry.
