Tough times, is what we seem to be having a lot of lately. The unprecedented moments can be trying for everyone. Life is a balance of yin and yang - can’t have good without some bad. It’s nature’s way of giving us a reality check now and again.
So, what we do in our household? Create food, love and share it with a great bottle of wine, or your favourite beer. In Korean, we call this AnJu - side accompaniments with any alcoholic beverage.
In the UK, it’s called a Ploughman’s Lunch - A Charcuterie board in France - Antipasto in Italy - call it what you may - it’s just plates or boards of deliciousness.
Tiny restaurants and taverns in Argentina and Spain dotted winding trails cross-crossing the countryside. For weary travellers, samples of food were offered. In North America, we know this as appetizers, whereby the Spaniards call it tapas.
