Gyojasang refers to a table prepared for holidays, feasts or other occasions when many people get meal together.  People often think it is good to serve numerous dishes made from high-quality ingredients; however, rather than serving too many, it is best to concentrate on a few main dishes, then prepare a few accompanying dishes, taking into account the color, ingredients, cooking methods and nutrition of the main dishes.  In Joseon (Chosun) dynasty, Gyojasang was categorized into Geongyoja, Sikgyoja and Eolgyoja.
