Li Pan, a chef in Rongjiang county, Southwest China's Guizhou province, makes a delicious course for dining, known as “bamboo tube dishes” which is based on local food traditions.
The basic recipe for the 14 dishes in the course calls for marinating the ingredients and then steaming them in a fresh bamboo tube for 40 minutes before adding seasonings. The special presentation with its many dishes is limited in supply, with only five servings per day, which attracts many guests outside Guizhou eager for a taste.
