Foshan Lingnan Tiandi: A Date with Zhejiang TV’s Chef Nic – Promoting Local Culture and Serving Up Traditional Specialties
On June 7th and 9th, Lingnan Tiandi welcomed a group of very special guests: the team behind Zhejiang TV's "Chef Nic" show. The well-known celebrity Nicholas Tse led the "Chef Nic Family" members, including Chen Weiting, Gu Juji, Qin Hailu, Jing Boran, Chen Yufan and Hu Haiquan, as they delighted fans in Lingnan Tiandi. During the recording of the show, Lingnan Tiandi offered its full support and cooperation to meet the film crew’s requirements. In addition to providing Wing Chun Hall and second-term tenant The Olde Minxin Store as filming locations, the Wing Chun Hall's head martial arts coach, Master Lei, was also enlisted to teach the guests Wing Chun martial arts, in a promotional boost for the sport and broader traditional Chinese culture.
Furthermore, the show also put specialty Lingnan cuisine under the spotlight. The secret recipe of traditional "hand-made ginger milk", a century-old staple of Guangdong cuisine, was revealed at the Olde Minxin Store, seeding a new craze among people looking to serve up their own specialty dishes. The show is scheduled to be aired in September 2015.
