One of my passions is psychology, so when I discovered Therapy Vineyards I just had to try their wines. They have some interesting (psych nerdy) names for their wines, such as Freudian Sip, Freud's Ego, Pink Freud, etc.. I am a huge fan of Freudian Psychology (don't judge), and love that all the names and labels are related to Freud in some way. This wine is not available in Saskatchewan, but you can get it in Alberta, BC, Ontario, etc..
I thought that this weekend was a good time to crack open the one bottle that I was lucky enough to get brought back for me from BC earlier this summer. I like that this Merlot, called Therapy has a Rorschach inkblot on the label.
The wine tasted as described, and was very nice served with dak galbi - a spicy Korean dish.
This dish is made with chicken (in a sauce that contains gochujang powder and paste, soy sauce, curry powder, sesame oil, cooking wine, etc.) ...
And rice cakes ...
As well as sweet potato, cabbage, onion and garlic ... We didn't follow any particular recipe; we just threw in what we wanted, including some mixed greens that needed to be used up, and ginger because it is awesome.
If you've never tried Korean food, you really need to! I haven't had any Korean dishes that I didn't love.
This meal was the perfect way to end off a pretty nice little weekend.
How was your weekend? What are you passionate about? Have you ever eaten Korean food?
