ceremony. After competition, all the participants will
obtain the certification of Bulgogi or Galbi cook and
the party go on with self prepared Bulgogi and Galbi.
These two meat dishes, either pork or beef, are always
served at Korean dinner parties. Galbi is ribs; bulgogi
is thin strips marinated then grilled. Neither is particularly
spicy and, if cooked at your table over a charcoal fire,
it resembles a barbecue.
Two foods that people have come to identify with Korea
are kimchi, a fermented vegetable dish, and bulgogi, a
marinated meat dish. Whereas kimchi is a staple dish that
is eaten at every meal, bulgogi is more like a party food
in that it is generally eaten on special occasions and
when dining out or entertaining guests. Koreans tend to
favor beef when entertaining or eating out, and bulgogi
is one of the most popular beef dishes and one that even
non-Koreans find very tasty.
