Let’s take a journey together to Seoul, Korea...
Gyeongbokgung Palace featured on the front of this card is one of the most magical places to visit – arguably on our great Earth! It was built three years after the Joseon dynasty was founded and it served as its main palace. With Mount Bugak as a backdrop, the main entrance to the Gyeongbokgung Palace is situated as the heart of the Korean capital city. It was steadily expanded before being reduced to ashes during the Japanese invasion of 1592.
For the next 273 years the palace grounds were left derelict until being rebuilt in 1867 under the leadership of Regent Heungseon Daewongun. The restoration was completed on a grand scale, with 330 buildings crowded together in a labyrinthine configuration. Within the palace walls were the Outer Court, offices for the king and state officials, and the Inner Court, which included living quarters for the royal family as well as gardens for leisure. Within its extensive precincts were other palaces, large and small, including Junggung (the Queen`s residence) and Donggung (the Crown prince’s residence).
Gyeongbokgung Palace is not the only “must see” in Seoul Korea! Every great visit includes a feast on traditional Korean barbeque. The term Korean barbecue or Gogigui (meat roast) in Korean refers to the Korean method of roasting beef, pork, chicken, or other types of meat. Such dishes are often prepared at the diner's table on gas or charcoal grills that are built into the table itself. Some Korean restaurants that do not have built-in grills provide portable stoves for diners to use at their tables.
The most representative form of gogigui is bulgogi usually made from thinly sliced marinated beef sirloin or tenderloin. Another popular form is marinated beef short ribs. However, gogigui also includes many other kinds of marinated and unmarinated meat dishes, and can be divided into several categories. Korean barbecue is not only popular among Koreans, but also has gained popularity internationally.
A unique ingredient in this delicious cross blend is Black Garlic. Black Garlic has long been prized staple ingredient in Asian cultures for its rich, smooth flavor. Black Garlic is created when raw garlic is slowly caramelized in an environment with carefully controlled heat and humidity. This magnificent cross blend takes traditional Korean BBQ flavors to a whole new level!
