▶Baegoja and guksi - Hometown food that the body remembers
Korean Russian food has been disappearing from the dining tables of 3rd and 4th generation Korean Russians. Now, people only eat them on rare occasions such as family parties. Irina's parents make baegoja to celebrate her long-awaited homecoming. Baegoja is a Korean Russian style dumpling with meat and vegetable filling.
Then, they boil noodles, pour in cold soy sauce broth, and top the noodles with meat, tomato, and cabbage to make a dish called guksi. It is the perfect summer dish for fighting off the 40°C heat.
A closer look into history of baegoja and guksi reveals stories of Korean Russians' life and history of settlement in Central Asia.
