La Tabla Katrina
-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
Picking up random items on various shopping trips over the past few months, I had accumulated enough goodies to constitute a legit tabla: Spanish-style cheese and charcuterie platter. I was inspired to make the platter tonight, following an impromptu pintxo that I had created earlier in the week (see 12.006 Three Herrings and a Loaf of Bread).
I named it after Kat, who gave me the board (inscribed with my initials, which I plan on getting tattooed on my arm someday).
The spread included baguette + green olives (sorry, but the store only carries Goya) + yellow peppers + kalamata olives + corniche pickles + Spanish cheeses (Iberico, Manchego, Queso de Cabra) + chorizo + sun-dried tomato paste + truffle paste + jalapeńos (not pictured).
In recent years, I am quite pleased that mainstream grocery stores in Korea have significantly diversified their products to include more imported products, including goods from Spain.
W and the boys saw what I was up to and made themselves ramyeon for dinner. More for me.
