In densely populated Chinese cities, modern life bumps up against timeless traditions. Hard work, family ties, ancient philosophies and very fresh food form the basis of daily life. In this information-packed program, author and traveller Paulette Mitchell takes us deep into the daily life of people living in Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Zhujiajiao and in particular examines the food they eat, where they get it and just why it is so important to them. This DVD also includes segments with locals speaking Cantonese and optional English subtitles. Be taken on a journey through modern China. Warning this program contains animal butchery.
