The fanciest Chinese village banquet in history!
Actually, I don’t really think this is the fanciest village banquet in history. I’ve seen pictures of similar banquets in other villages throughout China, some of which are at least as large as this. These “hundred family banquets” （百家宴） have a long history in rural China… all Chinese love both food and excitement… but I’ve never been to one. They’re being developed as a tourist theme event these days, so maybe I’ll get to experience it that way. But I’m sure it can’t possibly be the same as eating with a few thousand of your closest neighbors and relatives.
Menu items include chicken, goose, eel… and other dishes I don’t recognize. Can those more familiar with Cantonese cooking can tell us what they’re eating?
