More from Korea: Videos and Photos

We didn't have enough room in the magazine to show all the incredible food I was fortunate enough to try in Korea, so here's a larger sampling. I was amazed at the variety of dishes and the beauty of the food. I can't wait to go back to Korea—next time with my husband and kids! (Read about my journey here.) VIDEO: My brother Tim is the first to lift a wiggly tentacle of "live" octopus. The octopus wasn’t alive, really—the animated tentacles were already separated from the rest of the animal.
