Culture of Food in China
Sharing preparation of the meal is ritualistic
Planning, shopping, chopping, woking
Group interaction creates community
Dumpling making for New Year
When the Western world was sending missionaries
Why did the Chinese send chefs?
“have you had your meal?”
Round table serves as altar of sorts
Common plates foster community
The idea is to keep the stomach full and the trash can empty
“I wanted to hug him but we don’t do that, so we cooked together”
