Students wait to buy dishes cooked by Fudan chefs in a cafeteria in Sichuan University.

China’s Sichuan University and Fudan University recently organized a "chef exchange," offering the students on both campuses a chance to taste the authentic cuisine of a different region.

Fudan students were soon taken with the delicious dishes cooked by chefs from Sichuan University. The special dishes sold out immediately, and some teachers even queued up to try the "imported" cuisine. A total of 12 dishes were available during the chefs' residency at Fudan.

Fudan University chefs also rolled out 12 local Shanghai dishes for students in Sichuan. One of the dishes was fried beef with cantaloupe. According to one of the chefs, it was an original dish created for Fudan University, and previously took home first place in a cooking competition. The chef said he was glad to cook for the students of Sichuan University, and it blew him away that he earned so many fans there.

An employee of the cafeteria in Sichuan said that she had never seen such a big crowd since she started working there three years ago. Students at both universities later joked that they had reached an agreement to keep each other’s chefs.
