Eating Korean in America

Opening with a question whether authentic national food exists or not, the Introduction invites the reader into the world of inquiry into Korean food in the United States. A brief history of food in the United States and Korea is presented, along with chapter by chapter settings of four different food items (chilled noodle soup, pancakes, barbecued beef, and rice mixed with vegetables) studied on four different locations (Los Angeles, Baltimore, Hawaii, and Iowa City).
