Offerings laid out, fruits vibrant with colour fill bowls, vegetarian dishes paired with meat dishes meant to evoke good fortune and good health.
Handmade tae by my grandma. Fried chewy dough filled with peanut butter and other glutinous dumplings filled with savoury meats and minced shiitake mushrooms.
Dinner was a feast of chicken, shrimp and asparagus, sweet and sour short ribs, braised pork hocks and lotus root soup. My my my… such abundance of deliciousness.
Ron brought over our aperitif… Landy cognac.
