Dear List Members,
I just got this query, and since my only connection to traditional Korean food is to enjoy
eating it, I thought I would forward this to you (with the original writer's permission) and see
if you could offer any assistance.

 Subject: query about Korean traditional food
   Dear Professor Fenkl,?

I am writing on the recommendation of Kyung Cho, one of my colleagues
at Bard High School Early College, who suggested that you might be able
to help me. I am a French historian and am teaching this semester a
course on food culture and history. I went to Korea last summer, in
part seeking a relatively stable food culture and would like to use
Korea as a case study of the tug of war between traditional foods and
the global, imported, and "fast." There is some interesting work in
English on the latter, but I am having trouble finding a good account
(in English) on the principles of Korean traditional food and its
relation to medicine. Would you happen to know a monograph, article or
non-academic book that you might recommend? Ultimately, I want
something to assign to my students (who are terrific and can handle
just about anything I give them) but I'll happy track down any
recommendations you might have!?
 Many thanks!  Rene?
