In this episode, Tianran He and Eva May venture to Xi'an, an ancient city with over 3000 years of history, capital to 13 Chinese dynasties. But first, our hosts are going to carb load on street food, from glutinous rice cakes.
Tianran He and Angela Fu are in historic Datong. Located in northern China's Shanxi Province, some 1500 years ago Datong was the capital of the Northern Wei Dynasty, which saw nomads unite northern China and Buddhism spread throughout the country.
Hosts Tianran He and Angela Fu are in Chaozhou, South China. They're on a quest to discover the secrets of its success, for Chaozhou is famed for its wealthy merchant guilds and its homegrown Teochew cuisine, which enjoys global recognition.
