The Year of the Sheep has now started….or is it the Year of the Goat?
The animal which represents 2015 is apparently up for debate as the relevant Zodiac sign refers both to goats and sheep depending on the country/language/culture.
I read somewhere that in Korea this year is mainly referred to as the year of the sheep, and as my blog mainly concerns Korean (and Japanese food), I think I will stick with that and show you my sheep dosirak!
Some readers may remember that I showed this lunch before, I actually made it last year, but I thought I would show it again 🙂
The sheep is made by cutting out small circles out of crabstick, and the head and legs are made from nori. Everything is positioned on a “field” of rice topped by cucumber and avocado slices, with some flowers from corn, cress, cucumber and ginger.
Oh, and I had my first bowl of Tteokguk yesterday…so now I am a year older….
