Gujeolpan means “dish of nine dishes” or “Platter of nine delicacies” and is actually named for the serving dish and not the food presented in the dish.
Gujeolpan is thought to have been introduced in the Joseon era as a dish for the royal court. It features a tray segmented into eight outer sections and a center piece. Various meats and vegetables are prepared and placed in the eight compartments while a thin crepe like flat cake is placed in the center.
Diners can select any one or combination of the fillings, placing it(them) into one of the cakes, and rolling it as a wrap.
This dish may be served as an appetizer or a main course.
This recipe is just one version, nearly anything that presents a colorful array can be substituted.
