Hi, one of the things (book?) 서유구 wrote (early 1800s) is called 옹희잡지. I can't find a definition or explanation of the term 옹희 in Naver dictionary or on Google. I found the hanja for 옹 (饔) in Naver encyclopedia about the text, and when I look it up, it says 아침밥/익은 음식/희생/요리하다. This text is about food, so I'm guessing either the 2nd or 4th definition makes sense. I don't know how to put it together with "희," which appears to be a native Korean 자. Can anyone help me figure out what 옹희 might mean? Thanks.
