Indulge me in one more anecdote, to prove I'm not a racist: I picked up fried chicken from a takeout shop last night. The chicken smelled great. When I got it home, the bag also contained an added surprise -- a container of white chunks in clear liquid. I hoped it might be raw potatoes to fry on stovetop. Alas, when the lid was removed, my dear husband gasped and asked, "Why does the kitchen smell like a dirty diaper?" Then he saw the take-out bonus -- kimchee. Fresh kimchee. Mmmmm.
I won't be eating kimchee anytime soon.
