12 Days of Tteok: Hosting your own Tteokbokki Festival
In preparation for the Korean New Year in 2010, I prepared 12 recipes drawing upon sauce ideas from around the world to pair with Korean cylindrical rice cakes, called garae tteok. It was partly inspired by Seoul's annual Tteokbokki Festival held on May 7-9, 2010. If you weren't able to make to Seoul in time for this year's festival or can't afford to visit Seoul because of the recession,you can organize your own Tteokbokki festival at home. You can read my blog posts for inspiration or come up with your own.
I found a fun website full of Creative Commons music. It's called Jamendo. The instrumental you hear in this video is called "You Are A Mirror" by Silence is Sexy from their album "This Ain't Hollywood". http://www.jamendo.com/en/album/40460. If you make YouTube videos and have found it difficult to find great music to match your great YouTube video, take a listen to Jamendo's selection. You can sign up via your Facebook account and start surfing.
