Chinese New Year Hampers at Shangri-La Hotel, Nanjing

At 3pm on 14 January, 2015, Shangri-La Hotel, Nanjing held a special activity in its function room. Ten students and media friends learned how to wrap steamed stuffed buns. Although the process looked easy, it was not, but everyone fun doing it.

People in Nanjing love to eat steamed buns, and they are good at picking the best one from a plate. The best bun is white, has plenty of delicious stuffing and wrapped up nicely.

The students who participated in this activity at Shangri-La Hotel, Nanjing were all confident that they could wrap a steamed bun and wanted to try it. The hotel’s Chinese Executive Chef – Mr. Hou Xin Qin, demonstrated the process step by step in front of the students.
First, the paste must be rolled out. Holding it by stuffing is added in the middle. It is ten rolled, while constantly adding flour. The wrap up is the most important process. Clamping the thumb and forefinger, it is kneaded and turning the hands, let it attach to a wrinkled. This process requires skill to produce a nice looking steamed bun.
