Chuseok Food: Songpyeon - Songpyeon is one of the representative snacks of Chuseok. This rice cake is prepared with rice or non-glutinous     rice powder that is kneaded into the perfect size, then filled with sesame seeds, beans, red beans, chestnuts, and     a host of other nutritious foods. When steaming the songpyeon, the bottom of the rice cakes are layered with     pine needles, which fill the rice cakes with their delightful fragrance.

I loved the feeling that accompanied Chuseok -- a holiday that marks mid-autumn and traditionally celebrates harvest. Here are some images that remind me of it.
