Royal Dining Korean Style -

Treat yourself and family or guests like royalty. The two dishes here, along with a variety of Korean ban chan dishes were served in the Korean Royal courts.

Gujeolpan, "Platter of nine delicacies" or Dish of nine dishes may have originated with the Royal Court of the Joseon period in Korea. This dish is actually named for the serving tray that the food is presented on, a covered tray segmented into eight outer sections and one center section.
The tray may be a simple but elegant lacquered wooden dish, or an elaborate affair of jade and jewels.

I posted a recipe for Gujeolpan in this thread:

For those who wish to get really fancy -

Here is an image for another version made with sliced daikon instead of the flat cakes:
