Korean cuisine shows a complex interaction of the natural environment and numerous cultural influences, and it stems from old agricultural and nomadic practices in Korea and southern Manchuria. Rice, vegetables, fish, and meats are the main ingredients of Korean cuisine. The typical Korean diet excludes dairy products. The quantity of side dishes served with steam-cooked short-grain rice gives traditional Korean meals their names. Nearly every meal includes kimchi. Sesame oil, doenjang (fermented bean paste), soy sauce, salt, garlic, ginger, gochugaru (pepper flakes), gochujang (fermented red chilli paste), and napa cabbage are some of the most commonly used ingredients.
