Asia - China / Sisters' Meals Festival Of Miao Ethnic Group
Asia - China / Sisters' Meals Festival Of Miao Ethnic Group
-Share food The Sisters' Rice Festival always begins with special family meals. Sharing traditional foods such as rice that has been colored with the dyes of different leaves, berries and flowers, then cooked in bamboo tubes, and homemade rice wine, is similarly practiced among the many Miao tribes. Some of the color rice is molded into balls that hold “hidden treasures”. These rice balls are presented to the lads who come to visit, and each treasure has a symbolic meaning. For instance, pine needles mean "You should give me embroidery needles." and cotton indicates the girl misses the lad very much, as it means "bear", the same meaning with "miss" in Miao language. A thorn tells the lucky fellow "You are the one!" Chopsticks or red flower pistils say, "Let's marry quickly -- the sooner the better." And a single chopstick, some garlic or chili means, "Find someone else!" -Duige (singing in antiphonal style) When celebrate the Sister Rice Festival, the girls and lads usually have a wide range of songs called Duige (singing in antiphonal style). They are seated in two separate rows. The girls sing to cross-question the derivation of the Sister Festival and the symbol of Sister Rice and the lads sing in response. Finally, the side that gives no response or sings off beat or gives irrelevant answers loses the game. If the girls are defeated, they will give the lads a present, such as a bangle, a pair of earrings, a finger ring, while if the lads lose the game, they will give the girls a memorable present, such as a silver bangle or a watch. The side that wins the game will also give the other side a present of equivalent value in return. During the festival, just like the youth, some middle-aged and old men also go to the neighboring villages to respond to singing with women of the same age. -Send Interesting Keepsakes After the wide range of songs-Duige, the girls will send the young men Sister Rice filled in a new bamboo basket or a new handkerchief as a present before they return home. Those who get Sister Rice mean that they have gained favor of the girls. But if not, they can beg them for the present pretending piteous, saying, "Please give me a little Sister Rice to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes." Then the girls will give them generously with sympathy. Some sharp-witted girls will hide some keepsakes such as pine needles, bamboo hooks, live chickens or ducks, Toona sinensis, capsicum, garlic in the bamboo basket or handkerchief to convey their affection. If a girl places a hot pepper in the man's rice, this means that she does not wish to befriend him. But a rice hook (made from rice) is put into the man’s rice means that the girl likes him. The below are some other keepsakes which have very interesting symbolic meanings: 1. Bamboo hooks indicate the lads should return the favor with umbrellas of the same number. Two crossed ones indicate the girl hopes to affiliate frequently with the lad. 2. Pine needles represent embroidery needles, indicating the lad should present embroidery needles and thread in return. 3. Toona sinensis means that the girl is willing to marry him at an early date, as it is called "moth" and means "marry" in Miao language. 4. Cotton indicates the girl misses the lad very much, as it means "bear", the same meaning with "miss" in Miao language. 5. Parsley has the same meaning with Toona sinensis. 6. Cotton and parsley indicate being anxious to getting married. 7. Live ducks mean that the girl hopes to get a pig in return to breed it for the feast of the next Sister Festival. 8. Capsicum or garlic indicates the girl doesn't want to communicate with the lad any more or wants to break off with him.
BALLOTINE OF ANJOU PIGEON Black pudding “made to order”, pickling brine and spiced juices The first thing I tried on the plate was the thick brushstroke of blood pudding. The texture was neither grainy nor heavy, it was rich, but didn't have that sanguine flavour I'd normally associate with blood (it was more like pureed liver with a hint of blood). Painted on the plate were also heavy strokes of concentrated jus that imparted a strong salty nuance to the rare (blue!!) cooked pigeon. The Anjou pigeon meat itself was melt-in-the-mouth tender and hearty – its leg formed into a drumlette giving some height to the otherwise flat dish – and its tissue contrasted by the sweet and toothsome baby turnips, and shallot decorating its sides. Any heaviness of the course was cut through by the tart flavours of the foamed pickling brine (it was a familiar vinegar base, but I couldn't pin point exactly what the sweet notes were) which lighted the dish. The crisp fried "Chinese cracker" aka crispy wonton strip chip (almost like the fried curlers available at dim sum lunches) retained its incredible crunch, and provided a much appreciated starch component against the protein (and intensely red) centric dish. Pretty well executed, and a course that had me wondering how wonderful the a la carte menu would be!
