My Christmas dinner, known as hot pot: you're given a pot of hot water with some vegetables already in it, and it's put on an open flame which you control under the table. I chose seafood, so that comes frozen in a side dish, plus more vegetables and noodles. You put in whatever you want whenever you want it, and it's very good! I also learned the hard way that it's good to establish a "cooling plate" where the cooked food can sit for a couple of minutes before you dive in. It is boiling water, after all.
There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.
