FOODSTORIES - Eunkyung Zebby Kang - Korea

Eating cold noodle on a heat up floor is like jumping into a 
cold / hot sauna.
Eunkyung Zebby Kang - Illustrator - Korea

I know it sounds crazy but Korean (including myself) eat ritually hot boiling soup in a stone bowl in the summer, and we enjoy cold noodles with half frozen broth in winter to cope the severe weather. 

Naengmyeon is a bowl of buckwheat noodle in cold beef stock. Yes, it's cold noodle originated from North Korean capital - Pyongyang and ironically it's loved by South Koreans. It's a popular summer menu but winter is the best season to taste it right.

There's a few restaurants to make it original North Korean recipe in Seoul. When you arrive, choose the ondol seat. Ondol is an 'under floor heating system' and one of the brilliant inventions of Korea. It defreeze your body especially cold feet and bottom and warm up your body instantly. When you are seated, the boiled noodle water will be served and you drink it as a welcome tea.  Eating cold noodle on heat up floor is like a jumping into cold / hot sauna back and forthIt is so very nice to feel your body warms up and soon your cheeks are blushed and it doesn't feel cold any more.

Don't be surprised by the size of bowl. it's huge, sip a cold stock first, and it is better to drink it than using spoon (most restaurants doesn't have spoons!) Share a dumpling with it, and enjoy the noodle with north korean kimchi and pickled daikon.

TEA GIFT TAIWAN

Taiwan Centennial Blessing Tea Gift Set were carefully selected as four of Taiwan’s premium tea, and the package is surrounded by the four words (福祿壽囍FU-LU-SHOU-XI) of blessing to celebrate Taiwan’s centennial and the use of tea for Taiwanese people to express our sensibilities. The historical and artistically designed window decorations typify windows to the Taiwanese lifestyle between a century of culture inheritance and our innovative future.The patterns of these tea gift boxes are reminiscent of traditional imagery used in old Chinese architecture to adorn windows and lampshades. Thanks to its decorative patterning, the outer sleeve can also be used as a lantern.

FOOD STORIES

I am not a culinary lady who loves to share cooking and baking recipes. I'd rather share stories and creative ideas about food. During my travels I've found that you can learn from a country and culture within 24 hours, because of its eating and food culture, just by going to the market, use your sences and ask questions. What are customs, rituals, traditions and individual habits when it comes to food....

I am collecting a series of Food stories by all kinds of people from all over the world. I'm happy that they tell of a strange feature, a kind of habit or ritual they have when it comes to eating.

Do you have a peculiar Food Story to share please send an email

FOOD MOOD


Archaeologists have found drawings of food on the walls of Egyptian pyramids. In ancient Egyptian culture it was believed that those drawings, through magical properties, would nourish those gone on to the after life. Things haven’t changed much since then. . . today you will find depictions of food on the walls of restaurants, people’s homes and in hotels.
