Pupils make lo­tus ban­quet

Changjiang Weekly - - SOCIETY - By Yang Xingci

On June 6 Moshuihu Pri­mary School in Hanyang District or­ga­nized a culi­nary com­pe­ti­tion with lo­tus as the main in­gre­di­ent. Pupils com­peted to show off their cook­ing skills. All 19 class­rooms in the school were turned into "kitchens." The pupils se­lected lo­tus flow­ers, leaves, seed­pods, and roots as their main in­gre­di­ents to make hot dishes on the spot. They could also bring halffin­ished desserts and cold dishes pre­pared at home and fin­ish them in the class­room. Af­ter all the dishes were fin­ished, the pupils in­tro­duced their dishes with pic­tures and po­ems. The judges se­lected as win­ners the most de­li­cious dishes, those that were the most rel­e­vant to the lo­tus theme, and dishes with the most artis­tic in­tro­duc­tion. The young chefs put to­gether some very in­ter­est­ing dishes, such as hot and spicy cray­fish, deep-fried lo­tus root stuffed with egg­plant, sauteed lo­tus sprout and shrimp, steamed lo­tus root stuffed with sweet os­man­thus honey and gluti­nous rice, and white fun­gus and lo­tus seed soup.
