Chinese food documentary series (available on Youtube): "A Bite of China"

In the wake of the popularity of “Flavorful Origins”, many have expressed further interest in similar docs on Chinese gastronomy as it is prepared, in its homeland.

“A Bite of China” is a series which premiered a few years back. It is fully funded by the central government of China, and thus it inevitably has its “kool-aid” moments (though the propaganda here is never over-the-top). And I’m sure at least a few of my fellow FTCers have already caught this series in its entirety. For the rest of you who need another fix in Chinese food and Chinese cooking, please enjoy! (I’ve hotlinked to the English versions of the shows below…)

The photography is great. The narrative is quite enticing.
