3rd Annual Chinese Food and Culture Festival

By Mr. Adam Bishop

Relationships are cornerstones of the Lakefield College School experience and with over 45 countries represented, students have a truly global community from which to draw from. We work hard to ensure that students study, play and live in a place where people care about one another, form lifelong friendships and feel a bond of trust. A place where everyone knows one another in a genuine, deeply connected way. One of the ways our community connects is through the sharing of cultural traditions.

On Sunday, January 19, Lakefield College School students were treated to an exceptional evening of food, tradition, and entertainment – the third annual Chinese Food and Culture Festival. This important annual tradition continues to grow and evolve. With humble beginnings, in 2018 we celebrated with 100 students in the Head of School’s residence, and in just three short years we have grown to feed 300+ in Hadden Hall. 

The Festival was created with two main goals in mind: to help share the rich history of Chinese food and culture with the LCS community, and to help give our Chinese students who come from so far away, an authentic taste of home at this meaningful time of year. 

Once again, this year’s festival featured a dumpling-making workshop, traditional Chinese gifts and games, and a delicious feast with numerous dishes – the hand-made dumplings, traditional fried duck, beef, chicken, fish, fried vegetables, fried rice, and several noodle dishes. This year's festival also included an afternoon tea and snack with an incredible variety of treats, including special hand-made moon cakes. To end our special evening, staff and students were treated to an amazing firework display over the beautiful LCS waterfront.

This year’s event was another great success, and it simply would not be possible without the support of many volunteers. Thank you to our student volunteers for leading activities and decorating:

************

1月19日,周日,“第三届中国美食文化节”如期举行,LCS的学生们享受了一场别具一格的美食、传统文化和游戏盛宴。每年一度的美食文化节逐年盛大,一年更比一年好。2018年,首届美食文化节举办,有100多个住校的学生参加;而短短三年间,已经有300多位师生来到Hadden Hall共享晚餐。

举办中国美食文化节有两个主旨:一方面致力于在LCS传播中国美食和文化的悠久传统;另一方面,在一年中最重要的节庆之日,让远离家乡的中国学生感受到归乡之情。

像往年一样,今年的美食文化节的主要活动有包饺子、传统中国工艺品展示和传统游戏。晚餐是品种多样的中华美食盛宴:手工水饺、烤鸭、牛柳、咖喱鸡块、水煮鱼、炒蔬菜、炒饭和炒面。今年还有最新的创意,增加了下午茶,除了传统中式红茶和白茶,还有珍珠奶茶。茶点也是品种繁多,还有自制的鲜肉月饼与红豆月饼。美食节在烟花中结束,LCS的师生在湖边观看了精彩的烟花。

今年的活动非常成功,这离不开志愿者的共同努力。衷心感谢组织活动和负责节日装饰的学生志愿者们:
