- Doseuksurasang

“Doseuk” is an old term for “dosirak,” meaning “packed meal.” The 12-cheop bansang, referring to the daily meal served to the king and queen, was given a modern twist to be presented to the program participants. The 12 dishes that make up doseuksurasang represent the traditional food philosophy founded in Eumyangohaeng (yin-yang and the five elements) and Yaksikdongwon (medicinal resources are the same as the sources of food/nutrition.)
