The bamboo trades up and down in Guilin

2012-07-31 | Cultures | Comments(0) |   Views:(25)

People in Guilin used a lot of bamboo products in old time. Housewife carried bamboo for shopping in the market everyday, children played bamboo toys in the street, like water gun, catapult and bow. Also most furniture was made of bamboo for the family. I still remember parents moved bamboo bed to the outside in hot summer night. How nice, we sleep on the cool bamboo bed to watch the sky and count stars. Even the pillow and mattress were made of bamboo. You know, summer is hot and long in Guilin, because it’s located in the subtropical region. People used bamboo furniture to make you cool off in summer.

This campaign was the late part of culture revolution (1966-1976), it started from two year of 1969, the third year of culture revolution, red guards had done the mission what Chairman Mao wanted. But the situation was out of control, red guards were still immersed in the passion of struggle. They wanted to carry out one after another great mission.

Time, the sworn enemy of food, sometimes is also the friend of food. Although we have obtained diversified ways to preserve food by means of modern technology, such old methods as pickling, air-drying, fumigating and salting had once unexpectedly brought us different and sometimes even unrivalled taste of food, which is the taste of time.

Here I will talk about two cured meat that is popular in South China especially in Hunan Province – bacon and salted fish.

Last month I went Daxu with a group from UK. Actually they only plan to stay in Guilin for two nights with full activities, but the second day the Li River got big flooding, the cruise was canceled. People can’t stay in the hotel doing nothing. So I recommended they go to visit the Ancient Town of Daxu.

A Bite of China – Power of Time on Kimchi

Time is the bosom friend of food; time is the mortal enemy of food. Although we have invented diverse ways to preserve food thanks to science and technology, such old ways as pickling, aeration drying, and bloating can not only keep food fresh, but also lead us to distinct and even more unforgettable flavour than that of fresh food. By far, food made by time twice still has a profound impact on Chinese daily diet. More importantly, it reveals the deep feelings of its people towards their hometown, such as kimchi.

It seems to all eaters that flavour is a top priority. And Chinese people never confine themselves to a flat and monotonous list of food. They are always giving it their best shot at seeking transformation from plant to delicacy. With their own understanding of food in Chinese Cuisines, they create conditions and seize opportunities in the process all the time.
