Transcript of My Culture Story: The Chinese Winter Solstice Feast


THE CHINESE WINTER SOLSTICE FEAST

The Food
The Family
The Memories
THE MEALS
There is such a medley of food to eat at this special event. A delicious afternoon snack is little dumplings in sugarcane water. In the evening and night, there are savoury fish balls, flavourful Chinese turnip, various other types of dumplings, and a special wintermelon soup that contains either a pork or chicken soup base.
TIME TO EAT!
A LONG TIME AGO...
My Gong Gong’s (grandpa’s) Grandma (my great-great grandma) taught him and his siblings how to cook the feast when he was growing up. She had learned from her elders, and they had probably learned from generations before that. In the past, it would usually be just the family enjoying some time together, but occasionally there’d be special guests or relatives.
NOW...
SPECIAL TIMES
Gong Gong’s favourite parts of the feast were seeing everyone so happy, and all the dumplings that he usually didn’t get to have. Now he passes on stories about past winter solstices to us. Like a dumpling, all of the food and special treats are on the outside, like the skin. The inside filling is all of the memories and traditions collected over the years that you can’t always see.
Ingredients!
AFTER I HEARD THIS STORY...
When I help cook and eat the meal, I enjoy every moment because I know how special it is to my family.
I WONDER...
Was this how my Gong Gong felt as a kid?
SOMEWHERE SOMETIME...
I can’t wait until I learn how to cook all of it for my family!

My Culture Story
HELPING OUT
There are so many meals for everyone to help cook- snacks, appetizers, and main courses. And of course, there are always dishes to be done...
Everything fits together to make a meal that will warm you up for the winter.
Poh Poh (grandma) and my mom and her sisters were taught by Gong Gong how to cook most of the dishes that he learned, and now the sisters cook it for their families. Now, we usually have it without the external family, although sometimes they visit or we visit for the occasion. My grandpa loves to help cook, and we all love it when he does.
