Chinanews, Berlin, January 20th (Reporter Ma Xiuxiu) As the Chinese New Year is approaching, 10 German culinary enthusiasts came to the Chinese Cultural Center in Berlin (hereinafter referred to as the “Center”) on the evening of the 19th to participate in the “Happy Chinese New Year— Taste Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner” Spring Festival Cooking Class. Long Wei, the culinary teacher of the center, designed a special menu for the New Year’s Eve dinner with cucumber, saliva chicken, steamed fish and dumplings according to the Chinese New Year’s food customs.

In the cooking class, Long Wei first introduced to the German students that the Chinese New Year’s Eve dinner is a family reunion dinner, which is the highlight of every year before welcoming the New Year. Not only are the dishes rich and colorful, but they also pay attention to many meanings. Long Wei explained in detail the production steps and key points of each dish from the aspects of material selection, knife skills, heat, seasoning, cooking, etc., taught cooking skills, and introduced to the students that eating fish during the Spring Festival means “surplus every year”, and eating dumplings The eating customs of the Spring Festival, such as “auspicious and wishful thinking” and “festive reunion”, vividly interpret the cultural significance of the Spring Festival.

During the cooking class where the students made delicious food by themselves, Long Wei taught the students how to roll the skin and pinch the folds. The students learned very seriously and gradually became familiar with the method of making dumplings. From rolling the skin to stuffing, everyone was very busy. I was so happy, I made dumplings with “various poses and different expressions”.

After class, in the hall decorated with beaming red lanterns, cute Year of the Rabbit posters and mascots, the students tasted Chinese food with relish and toasted to celebrate the Spring Festival.
