Description
This fourth stamp packet in the Korean Food Series introduces sinseollo, hwayangjeok, bibimbap , and Gujeolpan, all expressing the style and wisdom of Korea's ancestors and their cuisine.

Sinseollo (Casserole with vegetables, meat, and seafood):
In Korean, sinseollo means the fire pot (or brazier) used by Taoist hermits. First, a pot is filled with a variety of meat, fish, and vegetables, and pure beef stock is poured over them. Then, the charcoal fire at the center of the pot is brought to a boil. Some call the food yeolgujatang, meaning "soup that is pleasing to the tongue." The casserole required sumptuous ingredients as well as much preparation by the cook, and was therefore an indication of great respect to guests when it was served at the dinner table, at gatherings or at a formal drinking party.
