Folklorama: Chicken Teriyaki and Bulkoki

Chicken Teriyaki 

Folklorama ’80 didn’t just give us a chance to learn about European countries, such as Great Britain, Ireland, the Ukraine, and Scandinavia.
We were also able to explore a bit of Asia.
Two very popular pavilions were the Japan Pavilion and the Seoul Pavilion.

The Japan Pavilion, hosted by the Japanese Canadian Citizens’ Association, was presented at Sargent Park Arena.
The program said: 
Japan - the land of sake and geisha girls.

There were young women in beautiful outfits and sake was readily available.
The menu included Japanese rice cakes (an exotic item at the time), tempura, chicken teriyaki, accompanied by Suntory (Japanese whiskey), and umeshu (Japanese wine).
The entertainment included Ondes (folk dancing), martial arts demonstrations, Ikebana (flower arranging) and Chanyo (the tea ceremony).

The audience has often been invited to join in the folk dancing.
Over the years they also had a very energetic drumming group.
The martial arts drew young men, while the tea ceremony was for patient folks.
The pavilion has always been a favourite, with lots to see, do and eat.

The Seoul Pavilion was set up at Chalmers Community Centre.
The Korean Association of Manitoba said: 
Enjoy the warm-hearted hospitality of the Korean people who invite you to share in their ancient heritage.
The heritage was shared by the displays of handicrafts, brush paintings, and ceramics, the Tae-Kwon-Do demonstrations, and the music provided by a Korean Choir.
The menu included Bul-ko-ki (Korean Barbecued Beef) and Man-Duo (Korean Perogie).

Both pavilions have been popular annual draws and are back for Folklorama50.
The Japan Pavilion now calls itself the Japanese Pavilion, while the Seoul Pavilion is the Korean Pavilion in the new program.


The chicken for the teriyaki can also be boned and skinned, then cut into chunks and marinated. Then it can be skewered alternately with pieces of Spanish onion and broiled or barbecued.

Beef, pork or fish can also be marinated in the teriyaki mixture.
Thinly sliced meat can be marinated, then fried in butter in an electric skillet at the table and served hot from the pan.
