Guilin, China

Learn to Make Rice Cooked in Bamboo Tubes

Longji not only offers breathtakingly scenic views of the lush winding rice terraces but also is famous for bamboo stuffed rice, a local delicacy of the mountainous region. While on the excursion to Longji, you will visit a local ethnic minority family, witness and be taught step-by-step how to make this kind special staple food. The bamboos are cut into shorter sections that are closed at one end. Stream-soaked glutinous rice, together with beans, corns and some other necessary ingredients are put into the bamboo tubes via a small hole of one end with an adequate amount of water. Then, they will be sealed by with banana leaves before being placed on a charcoal fire until all turn black, which means they are thoroughly cooked. The dish is unlike any other common staple food as it combines the great flavor of rice with subtle scent of fresh bamboo. While watching locals make the rice cooked in bamboo tubes, you can get a chance to chat with the family, walk around their traditional wooden house, and learn more about their traditions and culture as well.
