Subject: [KS] Traditional Korean Food query

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
