Fotiaoqiang

Updated:2008-07-17 16:29 | Source:

Fotiaoqiang, a famous dish from Fujian Province, is highly desired by people throughout China-and the world-for its unique taste, and because of the stories associated with the food.

The dish is made from chicken, duck and 18 other materials and 12 seasonings, including yellow wine from Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province.

Fotiaoqiang, translated into English, means a monk jumps over a wall. It was said that a monk went to Fujian Province to spread Buddhism. There was a restaurant near the temple in which he stayed, and the monk could always smell the unique scents from the eatery. Eventually, he couldn't resist any longer, and he jumped over the wall, between the temple and the restaurant, and sampled a dish.
