A Bite of China

For November’s Documentary Group, we will be screening two episodes of ‘A Bite of China’ (舌尖上的中国) – a Chinese documentary television series on the history of food, eating, and cooking in China directed by Chen Xiaoqing and narrated by Li Lihong, with original music composed by Roc Chen. 
The series first aired May 14, 2012 on China Central Television and quickly gained high ratings and widespread popularity. The seven-episode documentary series, which began filming in March 2011, introduces the history and story behind foods of various kinds in more than 60 locations in mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. The documentary has also been actively encouraged as a means of introducing Chinese food culture to those unfamiliar with local cuisine. Various notable chefs such as Shen Hongfei and Chua Lam were consultants on the project.
The screening will be followed by a discussion led by Karolina Pawlik.
