Chinese dishes have poetic names, often because the characters share similar sounds. It’s a playful way to explain the food. The Chinese name of this dish is ‘Double Winter’, because it features winter bamboo shoots and black shiitake mushrooms, both of which have the Chinese character for winter in their name. It’s also a hearty dish—perfect as a cold weather meal.
