Ever wondered why the French say "Tchin Tchin!" when they raise their glasses before drinking? The legend says that Marco Polo and soldiers coming back from China introduced the expression to Europe first after hearing the Chinese repeat qing qing （請！請！）several times before inviting them to drink. If so, the term suits well the Tchin Tchin Wine & Cuisine festival--a celebration of culinary exchange between Europe and Asia.
