Suunjapbang (hangul: 수운잡방; hanja: 需雲雜方) is a cookbook written by Kim-yu (hangul: 김유; hanja: 金綏; 1481~1552) in about 1540, during the early period of the Joseon Dynasty of Korea.

Contents

Regarding its title, suun (需雲) means dignified food culture, and japbang (雜方) means various methods, so suunjapbang means ways of making food fit for a man of refined taste. Books one and two include a total of 121 recipes from Andong, Gyeongsangbuk-do, such as how to make alcoholic drinks. Suunjapbang consists of 25 pages, and its manuscript is written using Chinese characters. The second book is thought to have been added by Kim-yu's descendants. This book is considered to be an important document recording the food of that period in history.

Composition

In this book, there is a total of 121 recipes described. The front section seems to have been written by Kim-yu, and the latter part was written in a cursive hand presumed to have belonged to his descendants, so its recipes are divided into book one and two, as in the following:
