【 韓國水冷麵最初竟然係冬天先食?】
去韓國旅行除咗食韓國燒肉或者海鮮之外,又點可以錯過韓國傳統食品-水冷麵。不過冷麵唔係由韓國發明,而係唐朝傳入朝鮮,再經過時間嘅改良,就成為2月26日嘅水冷麵。但唔講唔知,原來最初嘅水冷麵係冬天先會食...你又知唔知點解呢?
A. 冬天食會冇咁傷身
B. 以前啲人要冬天先有凍水整水冷麵
C. 水冷麵嘅主要材料「蕎麥」係秋季收成
答案係A,因為韓國人有「以熱治熱、以冷治冷」嘅習慣,即係飲食應該順應天氣季節,如果夏天體內暑氣較高,再食凍野就會傷身。例如佢哋會喺夏天食一碗好熱嘅人蔘雞湯,用嚟將汗逼出嚟、排毒同恢復元氣,就係咁佢哋食冷麵都會喺冬天食。但隨住時代改變,水冷麵唔再係冬天先食,反而成為夏天消暑美食。最常見嘅韓式冷麵食法分為兩種,一種係浸喺大骨湯,口味酸酸甜甜嘅「水冷麵」(Naengmyeon)),另一種係乾辣嘅「乾冷麵」(Bibim-guksu)。下次冬天去首爾嗰陣,可以試下食水冷麵,可能食完會暖啲~

【 Did Naengmyeon (cold noodles) originate in winter? 】
Aside from Korean Barbecue and seafood, a trip to Korea won’t be complete without feasting on another Korean delicacy, Naengmyeon (cold noodles). Actually, these cold noodles didn’t originate from Korea but were first brought in by the Chinese during the Tang Dynasty and have evolved over time to become the Naengmyeon that we know of today. In fact, the original cold noodles were eaten in winter! Can you guess why?
A. Eating cold noodles in winter is better for our bodies
B. Water is only cold enough in winter to make Naengmyeon
C. The noodles’ main ingredient of buckwheat is only harvested in fall
The answer is A! Koreans adopt the mantra of “fight heat with heat and cold with cold”, meaning their diets take after the seasons. For instance, they believe eating a piping hot bowl of Samgye-tang in summer will force sweat and toxins out and improve overall health. Naengmyeon, therefore, has always been enjoyed over the chilling months. But over time, Naengmyeon made it onto summer menus as a cooling treat. Naengmyeon are usually categorised into two types: the sweet and sour Mul Naengmyeon in soup and the dry Bibim-guksu. Why not try a bowl of cold noodles next time you head to Korea in winter? It might just warm you right up!
