[InKunming--Yunnan] Yunnan Province with its mild climate and abundant rainfall is home to a large variety of plants and animal species, making the ingredients used in Yunnan cuisine very diverse. Yunnan cuisine, often referred to as Dian cuisine, has its own unique style because of its geographic location, diverse local plant and animal species and numerous ethnic minority groups. So what does the Dian cuisine taste like in foreigners’ opinions?
Here comes a piece of good news. Kunming Information Hub plans to establish a new column “Unveiling Yunnan”（海外看昆滇）. The first activity is to hold a Dian cuisine tasting party, which will be held on October 28. We sincerely invite 10 foreigners to try local cuisine and give their comments.
Most importantly, as if you are a foreigner in Yunnan, you could enjoy a delicious lunch for free. Expect for that, you could enter the kitchen to learn how to make Dian dishes and make friends all over the world.
The top 10 foreigners who register on Cailong Club until October 27 by making a comment(name of country+name+ favorite Dian cuisine) will be our guests to join in the party. You could try famous Shiping tofu, which is shot in the documentary A Bite of China. Of course, you have chance to eat various Yunnan cuisine then.
Insect cuisine is served as pricey delicacy in minority-themed restaurants in Yunnan.
The insects(grasshoppers, bamboo grubs, wasp larvae) were deep-fried, which gave them a shiny bronze color. If you taste, the meat revealed a flavor akin molasses on your tongue.
Lan Tofu, which has a green look and nice taste is easy to make.
Flower erkuai is a kind of highly refined and compressed rice cakes.
Stir-fried beef with pickled sour bamboo shoots（酸笋炒牛肉）is one of the special dishes of Dai nationality, and tastes a little bit sour and a little bit spicy.
When foreigner try Dian cuisine, what will exactly happen? Let us wait and see!
Besides, the restaurant owns an elegant environment. We guess you will enjoy a good time there. Anyway, just grab this chance and register for it right away!
