Honorifics Counterparts

안녕하세요 ^^

There are different ways to use honorifics. Honorifics are usually used when the subject or the listener are older than the speaker, of a higher rank or social status, and also when the speaker and listener are not well acquainted with each other. Overall,…

This is a fragment of a ceiling painting at the Painted Hall at Greenwich University in London (formerly known as Old Naval College). I don’t know if it was already on your blog but when I saw it I immediately thought of you and amazing work you do to educate us on your blog. Therefore thought I’ll let you know about this medievalpoc

No, I didn’t know about it! It’s almost certainly an Allegory of Africa, similar to this one by Claudio Francesco Beaumont:

Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

When the weather is getting chilly like now, there’s nothing better than this dish with a shot of soju for dinner. It warms you right up! This dish is full of everything tasty, big chunky juicy dark meat chicken, soft potatoes and deep, rich and spicy juice that tastes so yummy when eaten with rice. Soju is a korean liquor made with mainly potatos. It tastes somewhere between japanese sake and vodka. It’s used in Korean cooking a lot, especially in cooking meat. When heated with meat, the alcohol evaporates and takes away the gamey smell of the meat with it. So even if you are not into drinking this liquor, it’s good to keep a bottle for cooking purposes. And they are super cheap at Korean grocery shops, usually less then $7 a bottle.  It is the most popular drink in Korea and there are many different brands but most of them come in green bottles. You can use any brand for cooking. If you can’t find soju near you, no worries. You can substitute soju with sake or vodka. You can use many different types of chicken as long as it’s dark meat: bone-in chicken thighs, wings, and drumsticks…etc. Just make sure they are not too big, and you might need to cook them a bit longer in order for the chicken to cook through. I like to use boneless chicken thighs the best because they take less time to cook and also less messy to eat.
