To start off with, the Korean cuisine is largely built up around rice, vegetables and meat. A classical table setting (반상; Bansang) typically consists of cooked rice, a soup, a little sauce, and last but not least, Kimchi – a very distinct range of fermented vegetables, most commonly cabbage and radish. A long and impressive selection of side-dishes (반찬; banchan) is added to this setting, easily taking up space of a whole dining table.

(If you want to eat like the ancient royal family, at least 12 side-dishes are needed!)
