This Auld Reekie Recipe (Scots name for Cock-a-Leekie) pays homage to my dear dad, as it was his favourite soup, and to my Scottish ancestors. In Scotland this soup is traditionally served on Burns Night and in the ‘olden days’ an old cock rooster would have been used, but today chicken is more readily available. ‘Auld Reekie’ is also the nick name for Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, and goes back to the days of the coal and wood fires that used to create a plume of reek (Scots word for smoke) over the old city and castle.
My mom cooked jeonbokjuk (abalone porridge) when I was sick, as it was healthy and easy to digest. As a big fan of all kinds of porridge and soup, I have tried many. Still, jeonbokjuk is the best. It is very savory, delicious, and also nutritious.
I hope you will try this recipe to warm your body and heart with a bowl of jeonbokjuk.
