The importance of food in people’s daily life in China can be seen in the way they send greetings to each other: "Have you eaten?", which is far away from the way people greet in western countries and has been seen as a characteristic kind of Chinese culture. In addition, as a part of Chinese food culture, chopsticks, which are usually made of bamboo, are another distinguishing feature known around the world. Today, chopsticks not only work as tableware but also become a kind of art object with exquisite decoration.
