Christmas Cake 2010

I am told that baking was never a part of Korean cuisine until its introduction when the peninsula was opened to the West in the late 19th century. In fact, the Korean word for bread, 빵 bbang comes from the French word pain.

They must be making up for lost time, because today bakeries like Paris Baguette and Tous les Jours can be found every few blocks as you stroll through Seoul.

A Christmas tradition here is the elaborate, and very rich, Christmas cake. These posts have photos of my Christmas cake last year and the year before. And in keeping with my tradition, here is a photo of my Christmas cake for 2010:

And, before I dig in, let me say to all my friends, as it does on the Christmas cake, Merry Christmas!
