special encounter: kitchen spartan of gung-ho tribe, jon lee


We have a very special guest to present us a meal today. Armed with the formidable lost ancient art of Chi Chopping(chopping food with hands), Jon Lee is here to contribute some of his ingenious recipes for theCurryPop.


As you can see, there are no chopping boards or knives in the kitchen. All the food items are chopped with Qi Gong. Sometimes, Chi Chopping can be very dangerous as the powers are generated from the energy of deep refined thoughts. Jon Lee must wear a protective head gear at all times, just in case wrong thoughts are generated and things around get chopped up for nothing.


What you see above is a process called magical marinating. This involves marinating meat with a sacred concoction of condiments and spices. This here is chicken, it is marinated with concoction theta(revealed below) and then reinforced with positive thoughts for the greatest flavor.

It is now time to reveal the sacred recipe.

Recipe: Flying Chicken Laughing Mongoose, The Epiphany of the Two Dragons, the Lotus Blossoms. (chicken stewed in wine)

5 cloves of Garlic, chopped
