A Bite of China offers big dish on food and family [Review]

Young Post gave you guys a chance to practise reviewing non-fiction films in English for your School Based Assessment and a second chance to see Katy Perry in Macau with two BFFs. Here is one of the top entries ...

A Bite of China is a seven-part documentary series about making and eating all kinds of Chinese food, including Hong Kong and even Taiwanese food. It introduces the history of food and the story behind different kinds of food. Chen Xiaoqing is the director. 

The series looks at the evolution of a variety of food in different districts, the Chinese food culture, the relationship between food, and seasonal evolution of Chinese food. Compared with the first season, there are more plots about laborers' lives and their feelings, and you find they are so simple and unadorned.

The most impressive part to me is the fourth one, about the daily life of a family and the basic food they eat daily. Behind the food, there is a strong sense of family, traditional etiquette and even the culture. In fact, the food even comforts the whole family. This part told me that homemade food is the most delicious. In China, the traditional food is the most valuable and irreplaceable.

The documentary is all about Chinese food, but actually the director wants to remind everyone about our hometown, about family.
