“When you walk in, and witness the locals slurping their noodles in delight, and you see and hear the slap of the noodles before they enter the giant noodle cauldron, you can feel the magic and the soul that is put in each and every bowl of the hand pulled noodles,” said Trevor James, aka the Food Ranger, commenting on the hand pulled noodles in southwest China. Currently living in Chengdu, southwest China, the Canadian foodie has recently gone viral online. Soon after the end of Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in China, Trevor has started making videos to record his Chinese food journey along the Silk Road. While Trevor traveled all the ways to savor the most delicious Chinese cuisine, such as hand pulled noodles, pilafs, roasted lamb chops and buns, he deeply felt the local customs and practices.

In recent years, many overseas Chinese and international students have brought the Chinese cuisine worldwide, enriching the local food experience. At the same time, Chinese cuisine documentaries, such as “A Bite of China” and “Tasting Treasures of China”, have vividly showcased the delicacy of Chinese food and the cultural connotations behind it. The colorful and tasty Chinese food is always tempting the foodies all over the world.

Chinese cuisine is not only about delicious taste but also represents a unique life style. You can feel the national ethos and even the philosophy of the country from what to eat and how to eat. Chinese people pay great attention to the harmony between the nature and human. Thus, they attach importance to the freshness and pairing of ingredients. They also appreciate the value of labor and the spirit of the craftsman, so they stress the delicate processing and accurate heating of dishes. All in all, the delicious food in the small plate opens the vast imaginary space for the diners. Feel it, not only with your tongue, but also with you heart.
