There are a few different versions of jjimdak in Korean cuisine, depending on the region it comes from and the ingredients used. The popular Andong jjimdak is a special dish from the city of Andong. This dakjjim recipe that I'm introducing to you to today is Andong style, which so many people have requested. I'll post a hot and spicy dakjjim (called dakbokkeumtang or dakdoritang) recipe someday in the future. Her cooking always made me hungry!!!

Sweets are a universal's true. While some have an extreme sweet tooth, others love the enjoyment of digging into a sweet treat. While there are many ethnic desserts all over the world, which one do we pick to enjoy to tonight's dinner? How about some desserts from Asia? From mooncakes to Asian sweet bread, there is a myriad of desserts to choose from. Traditional Mooncakes Mooncakes are traditional Chinese food during the mid-autumn festival. Typically, mooncakes are round or rectangular shaped with an elaborate design on the top. The filling of the mooncake can be a rich and thick red bean or lotus seed paste. There are cakes that have just the filling but others have one or even two salted duck eggs in the middle. The crust is relatively thin and covers the entire cake. Mooncakes are rich and sweet, perfect with a cup of tea.
