About the festival and Zong Zi

June 2 this year is the Dragon Boat Festival according to the Chinese traditional calendar. Besides holding Dragon Boat races, Chinese people also celebrate by making Zong Zi.

Zong Zi is a unique Chinese food made of sticky rice and other ingredients, wrapped in bamboo leaves to make the shape of triangular pyramid. There are many flavors of Zong Zi with different ingredients in Guangdong. Among them, one of the most popular tastes is pork and dried seafood.

The selection of ingredients in making Zong Zi needs particular attention. It requires the best part of pig in which the muscle and the fat are in the perfect proportion. Add a slice of premium ham to cater to both your teeth and taste buds with its exquisite texture and rich flavor. There is sure to be a lot of treasure to hunt – a preserved egg yolk, a pick of dried shrimps, dried scallops and winter mushroom bits –see if you can find them all! They are all hidden in the sticky rice and wrapped in some bamboo leaves. After hours of steaming, the smell of fresh leaves is absorbed by the rice and other ingredients, and the whole Zong Zi is ready to eat.
