Otherwise known as Korean Thanksgiving!
Chuseok is a major holiday in Korea. The holiday celebrates the harvest season and always occurs near the autumnal equinox. It is a time to pay respects to elders and ancestors to encourage an abundant harvest.
In South Korea, the whole country shuts down - businesses close, schools go on break and traffic is mayhem. It is one of the only times of year that you’ll see Seoul slow down and get quiet. People escape the cities to the countryside to visit the graves of passed relatives and visit their elders. But never without elaborately packaged gift boxes of delicate duk (rice cakes), precious perfect fruits and the most treasured of all - SPAM.
Mike and Yuri were in Seoul this time last year visiting Yuri’s family.
Here’s a peak at her aunt’s Chuseok table:

World expert on the food of Latin America, author, and chef Maricel Presilla is this week’s guest on Taste Matters. Tune in for a lively conversation about the culture, cuisine and culinary landscape of Latin America. Find out how she managed to write the personal yet encyclopedic award-winning book “Gran Cocina Latina: The Food of Latin America”. Learn how all the different Latin American cuisines are part of a larger constellation, and find out why Maricel is not a fan of deconstruction in food. This program was sponsored by 360 Cookware.
“My book, “Gran Cocina Latina: The Food of Latin America”, is a product of the US, because I could buy every ingredient I needed in a short distance from my home in New Jersey.” [08:05]
“Deconstruction doesn’t work for me. Some foods require a matrix and there’s a synergy when the elements are combined.” [23:00]
“You have to think about Latin America food as part of a constellation.” [28:00]
