Lesson 12. The Chinese Delicacy
You：Have you ever heard about Man Han Chuan Xi at all?
David：I am not sure. What was it like?
You：In the Qing Dynasty the court invented a special type of cuisine for the royal family, which included many elaborate dishes at one meal. It is called Man Han Quan Xi.
David：Sounds good. Let’s go have some now.
You：It’s practically impossible now because there are probably only a few people in the world who know how to make it. They say it takes three to four days for them to make just one meal.
David：It’s very time consuming.
You：I think some people do eat it, but most people don’t have the chance to.
David：It’s a fast paced world today. People don’t have time to cook for five days for a meal.
You：That’s not the problem. The problem is that most people don’t know how to cook it because there are so many kinds of dishes.
