西安饺子宴

Whether you are travell-ing in the north or the south of China, one delicacy you are almost sure to find on the menu is the dumpling. A universal favourite, the Chinese dumpling has a long history and is an essential part of celebra-tory meals such as those prepared for the Chinese lunar Spring Festival. The dumpling can be anything from a quick snack to a delicacy with which to entertain family and friends or the basis of a veritable feast. 无论你在中国的南方还是北方,菜单上必不可少的一个就是饺子。作为大众都比较喜欢的食物,中国的饺子有悠久的历史,它是中国庆祝传统节日的必吃食物,比如春节。饺子是从快餐到招待家人,朋友的的美味都可以。

A well-loved story tells how long ago during the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220 AD) a doctor named Zhang Zhongjing travelled back to his hometown in the county of Nanyang. He found the people were suffering from an outbreak of typhoid and dying from hunger and cold. In fact the weather was so cold that many had frostbitten ears to add to their troubles. The kindly doctor set about concocting a mixture of mutton, cayenne and a special medicine that he wrapped in a piece of ear-shaped dough. The dumplings he created were fed to the starving people and by New Year's Eve, not only were they saved from the typhoid epidemic but also their frost bitten ears were healed. The doctor's fame became legendary and thus the dumpling became a favourite addition to the Chinese diet.

一个发生在东汉的爱情故事,一位名叫张仲景的大夫,周游以后回到他的家乡南阳县,发现这里爆发了伤寒病,许多人因饥饿和寒冷而死。因为天气实在是太冷了,很多人冻伤了耳朵,特别的麻烦。好心的张仲景就亲自做了羊肉汤,放了辣椒和一种特别的药材,把他们包裹在一种耳朵形的面团里。在除夕夜,他发明的饺子救活了饥饿的群众,不仅治好了人们的伤寒症,而且耳朵的冻伤也好了。后来张仲景的名声就越来越大,饺子也成了人们传统节日的必吃食物。

Xian, an ancient city that has been the nation's capital during no less than eleven dynasties spanning more than a thousand years is regarded as the home if not the birthplace of the great dumpling tradition. It was here that the art of creating the most tasty and delicate of dumplings was refined and no visit to the city is complete unless you partake of a Dumpling Dinner.西安,作为十一朝古都,延续时间超过了一千年,被认为是饺子传统的发源地。如果没在西安吃过饺子宴,都不算真正的来过西安。

This is an experience for the dumpling connoisseur, the flavours, shapes and colours will tempt the palette, while the elegant names and stories attached to each variety are truly amazing. It is no less amazing that a simple way of preparing food has become so very popular and sophisticated that it is now considered to be as much a work of art as a tasty morsel.对饺子行家来说,这是很难得的体验,不同的味道,形状,颜色,都有不同的名称来搭配。让人惊奇的是,用一种简单的方法制作食物也可以变得这么流行,复杂的过程就被当做艺术来看待了。

It is said that to visit Xian without seeing the fantastic Terracotta Army as well as having a Dumpling Dinner means that you have not really been to Xian at all!如果去了西安但是没有看过兵马俑,没有吃过饺子宴,就不算真正得到过西安。

Did You Know? 你知道吗?
In northern China, it is customary for families to spend New Year's Eve preparing batches of Jiaozi dumplings. Families start eating the dumplings after midnight. And, just as nineteenth-century English cooks hid a silver thruppence inside each batch of Christmas pudding, one lucky family member may bite into something hard and discover a gold coin inside their dumpling. 
 在中国的北方, 饺子是家庭在出席习惯吃的一种食物, 家庭在午夜后开始吃饺子,正如19世纪 英国厨师在圣诞节里躲在家里面做布丁一样的,一个幸运的家庭成员可能在吃的时候会感觉到一个很硬的东西,那是就会发现有一个金币藏在饺子里。
