Korean Rice Cake (Songpyeon 송편)
Songpyeon is a traditional Korean food made of glutinous rice. It is a type of tteok, small rice cakes, traditionally eaten during the Korean autumn harvest festival, Chuseok. It became a popular symbol of traditional Korean culture.
Songpyeon is made from 100% short grain rice cake dough that’s filled with various fillings then hand shaped and steamed. When steaming, it is traditionally steamed on top of a layer of pine needles. Pine needles add a wonderful evergreen aroma and also act as a non-stick liner preventing Songpyeon from sticking to the steamer. Additionally, Korean ancestors also believed that by steaming the rice cakes with the pine needles, the ‘chi’ of the pine tree gets absorbed into the rice cakes then that ‘chi’ transfers on to the person who eats them, helping them become healthy and strong like the pine trees.
And because of Chuseok celebration from 23 to 25 September 2018, special cooking class this time, we will do hands-on experience for those who want to try to make your own Songpyeon!
