First House of Delegates Mid-Term Virtual Meeting:

Motivating & Worthwhile

At our last two HoD meetings, the HoDs stressed interest in meeting annually between each International Symposium Therefore, the IFDH Board held the organization’s first 3-hour, virtual meeting on Saturday, September 9th, 2023, with representatives from 23 countries. Some were unable to attend due to time zone issues. The overall response was that it was motivating and a worthwhile venture. We feel this will be a regular event in the future.

What is Korean food?

Hansik refers to traditional Korean food, centered on rice, served alongside a bowl of soup and a variety of side dishes. Most dishes use meat and vegetables as the main ingredients, boiled or steamed in brine or water rather than fried in oil, making hansik very healthy. Hansik’s most outstanding feature is the fermented foods. The most well-known are kimchi (fermented cabbage).
