The gastronomic culture of China is often perceived by Europeans as mysterious, complex, and unusual. The etiquette school for children was organized by my agency in collaboration with one of the most respected, experienced, and prestigious restaurants in the city, “Red Lobster “.
My task was to organize the educational process for children, prepare a script for the event, and select options for Chinese dishes for review. The restaurant’s job was to prepare these dishes. What was important? The excellent taste of the dishes, impeccable presentation, and service. And the main violin in our orchestra was the guest consul of the People’s Republic of China, Yu Zhoulin.
In order for the lesson to go flawlessly, on the eve of our gastronomic lesson, the director of the restaurant, Alexander Rudenko, and I met with the consul and discussed the details of the upcoming event. We approved every dish. We also we looked at the script of the event, what and how Madam Consul will be able to tell about the culture of China, its traditions, and cuisine.
