Dak Dori Tang
* * *
With Wife and Dominic
For background, I defer to a prior post on this dish (see 2.110 Dak Dori Tang).
I asked the wife, who'd made the dish and therefore had complete discretion to decide what to call it, what she was calling it. Before she could answer, I reminded her of the controversy surrounding the traditional name "dak dori tang" (닭도리탕), an issue discussed in the prior post. Without hesitation, she said, "dak dori tang."
Personally, I believe that the dish should remain "dak dori tang." But it's a potentially touchy subject, one with possible historical and geo-politcal ramifications, and I don't want to end the year on such a serious note, so I'll save the explanation of my reasonings for a future post.
As far back as I can recall, this was the first New Year's Eve that I spent at home, and sober at that.
5 meals remaining in the cycle.
