Students at a high school in Iksan responded to the prompt: Tell me a memory about a food or dish.
In my memory is the baek-suk made by my mother. The reason is that I crave the taste of the dish I had on one particular day. Since then, her recipes have changed. The day I ate the dish was very cold. It snowed on the way home from school to eat dinner after studying. I was freezing, but when I ate the warm soup of baek-suk, I felt like I was melting. The chicken was also very soft. In the end, I ate two bowls of rice. Even now, when it’s cold, I think of baek-suk. I think the dish is a rice-thief.
