About this activity
After the guide pick you up at the hotel or Hangzhou Train Station at 12:30, journey over to Tangqi Old Town on the old Hangzhou Grand Canal to see a private gallery of traditional patterned cake molds and understand some of the characteristics of traditional Chinese sweets of different areas and eras. Train your eye and get a feel for the different marks that father time has left on the wooden carved mold-presses – see and smell the stories of old China hidden in their carvings. See them, smell them, and best yet, get a taste of this heritage snack with cultural significance!
After seeing the collection, it’s time for our teacher to guide us through how to make these rice-based treats, from dough-kneading, to fill-stuffing, choose your ingredients and color to make the cakes you want; mold press them, knock them out then watch each batch of exquisitely patterned treats come fresh out of the steamer. While they’re hot, we’ll gather around a table and exterminate our tasty little creations through eating games! Guess the ingredient combination in the cake you’re eating; see who strikes gold with one of the master’s meticulous and skillfully prepared special cake. In this afternoon full of surprises, we will eventually peel ourselves away from Tangqi, board our return car, and let the day’s itinerary end.
