Food Adventures: Making a Chuseok Feast

Chuseok is Korea’s autumn harvest celebration, but it is also a time to pay respects to one’s ancestors. Koreans pay visits to ancestral villages and prepare a table of favorite foods for deceased ancestors.

Together, the students feasted on the delicious fruits of their labor.
