July's Food Recommendation
I'd strongly recommend it to anybody who, like me, is suffering under the intense heat and humidity of July.
Widely believed to be a cure for numerous physical ailments, samgyetang (삼계탕) is also an excellent remedy for a hot summer. Consisting of a whole young chicken stuffed with glutinous rice, and boiled in a delicious broth of Korean ginseng, dried jujube fruit, garlic and ginger, its nutrients are thought to replace those that are easily lost through excessive perspiration during the hot summer months. Do note that only whole uncut ingredients are used for the dish, as they preserve the maximum amount of nutrients.
Mildly fragrant, the soup is delicious and the chicken tender - a most appetizing dish for any time of year!
