From November 18 to 23, the overseas communication series of "Precious Taste of 
Liaoning in Japan" co-sponsored by the Information Office of Liaoning 
Provincial People's Government and the News & Information Center of Xinhua News 
Agency was successfully held in Tokyo, Japan.

As one of the activities of the "Precious Taste of Liaoning - the 2nd Northeast 
Asia Popular Cuisine Culture Exchange Week", the "Precious Taste of Liaoning" 
event was launched in Tokyo for the first time, which promoted the exchange and 
mutual appreciation of food culture between China and Japan as well as the 
Chinese food culture.

Food is a world language without borders. During the event, the Liaoning folk 
cuisine delegation, consisting of Chinese and Japanese friends, leaders of the 
catering industry and industry associations, held a series of activities with 
food as the carrier, such as "Dalian Seafood Cooking in Chinese and Japanese 
Styles", "Liaoning Dumplings Meet Japanese Sushi", and "Liaoning Cuisine 
Tasting". Chinese and Japanese guests from all walks of life carried out 
dialogues and exchanges around food, tourism and culture, building a bridge of 
friendship for cooperation between the two sides.

Li Wanpeng, Consul of the Chinese Embassy in Japan, and Liu Jingxian, Honorary 
Chairman of the China Hospitality Association, and Master of Chinese Cuisine, 
respectively sent video messages to the event.

In the future, the two sides will also carry out in-depth exchanges and 
cooperation in economy and trade, tourism, academia, culture and other fields.

Liaoning Province, China, a sea away from Japan, has granaries in the north, 
fish farms in the south, livestock in the west, and orchards in the east. The 
good natural environment provides a rich material basis for the diet of 
Liaoning people and creates the characteristics of Liaoning cuisine with a wide 
range of materials and careful selection of ingredients. As a new cuisine after 
the eight major cuisines, Liaoning cuisine has absorbed the essence of 
traditional techniques of court cuisine, royal cuisine, Beijing cuisine and 
Shandong cuisine, and become a regional cuisine with distinctive 
characteristics. In addition, Liaoning has a rich variety of famous snacks with 
a long history.
