About the event
Chinese festivals cannot be celebrated without reunion and delicious food. Learn the production of traditional cuisine and feel the flavor of life in the kitchen.
All ingredients in this workshop are vegan. According to the FAO report, the animal husbandry (including poultry) sector (besides meat, it also provides animal power, leather, wool, milk, eggs, chemical fertilizer, medicine, etc.) accounts for about 18% of global greenhouse gas emissions, expressed as 100 year CO 2 equivalent. Environmental problems in the production of animal products may also be related to biodiversity loss, pollution, deforestation, unsustainability and water and land use. Therefore, vegetarianism will contribute to environmental protection
There are three flavors: vegan meat, sweet bean paste and lotus paste. The final product is about 5 cooked zongzi, which can be frozen at home for two months.The workshop lasts 2.5 hours. The previous hour is for the teaching and production of zongzi. It takes 1.5h to cook it. During this period, students can move freely or participate in other workshops.

Introduction to Dragon Boat Festival:
The Dragon Boat Festival originated in China and was originally a dragon totem worshiper in ancient Baiyue area (the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River and the South) Tribal totem sacrifice festivals are held. Before the spring and Autumn Festival in Baiyue, it is customary to hold tribal totem sacrifice in the form of dragon boat race on the fifth day of may in the lunar calendar. Later, because Qu Yuan, a poet of the state of Chu (now Hubei) in the Warring States period, committed suicide by jumping into the Miluo River with a stone on that day, the rulers took the Dragon Boat Festival as a festival to commemorate Qu Yuan in order to establish the label of loyalty and patriotism; Some areas also have statements in memory of Wu Zixu and Cao E.
The Dragon Boat Festival, the Spring Festival, the Qingming Festival and the Mid Autumn Festival are known as the four traditional festivals of the Han nationality in China. There have been Dragon Boat Festival and Dragon Boat Festival since ancient times. Since 2008, the Dragon Boat Festival has been listed as a national legal holiday. In May 2006, the State Council listed it in the first batch of national intangible cultural heritage list; In September 2009, UNESCO officially considered and approved China's Dragon Boat Festival as a world intangible cultural heritage, becoming China's first festival to be listed as a world intangible cultural heritage.
