After a long vacation, the old artist revisited “A Bite of China”.Classics are always new, and the Bite of China series is no exception.The first brush went straight to the food, but after the N brush, I found that it was just the scenery that passed unintentionally through the lens, which was also poetic and pleasing to the eye.For example, in the episode “The Taste of Time”, the lively scene of laver planting in fujian’s coastal area is shown. The narrator timely sounds: “Under the refraction of sunlight, on the sea glittering like scattered gold and jade, between the bamboo and the trellis, there are sails and human figures swimming.▽ The glimmering laver planting scene.If you are a photography enthusiast, just by imagining the words, you can probably guess that such a fantastic beach can only be owned by Xiapu.Located in the northeast corner of Fujian province, the county, although small transparent tourism, is the photography circle of the old network red.Xia, is the magician of light and shadow;Pu is the mouth of the river.The most beautiful beach in China is created by the combination of thousands of rays of light and coastal fishing villages.Now Xiapu, with mature posing industry, has become a professional output of large visual factory.▷ In Hapo, you can see a lot of pictures everywhere.When photography enthusiasts aim long guns at Xiapu, in a sound shutter, cleverly grasp temperament charming scenery like oil painting, how many people are amazed at xiapu’s light and shadow, how many people are disappointed in reality and pictures do not match the photo cheat.Place to take the hustle and bustle of the resort, praise and praise, how much let Xiapu distortion.Only when we walk into this land surrounded by mountains and seas without any expectation, can we know where the three-dimensional Xiapu is really vivid compared to the scenery with the sky shining at the right time and full of filters.You may not have been to Xiapu, but you must have experienced xiapu in many beautiful pictures of the network.The vast tidal flat is like a canvas, with the ebb water drawing tiger-like textures, while bamboo poles for kelp and laver and cofferdams for small seafood depict vivid curves in the form of S-bends and oracle bones.△ Vivid curves on vast beaches.The sunrise off the coast acts as natural paint, painting dreamlike colors on these lines.Cloud white, sea blue, exposed water surface beach from goose yellow all the way transition to red.Whether it is the winding and picturesque harbour branches in the distance, the rolling mountains, or the near figures rushing to the sea, the fishing nets swaying in the wind.With this strong and colorful color, all automatically frozen in the painting.In addition to the oil painting texture of coastal scenery, Xiapu also has the ancient tree canopy held up pastoral songs.At Yangjiaxi, thousand-year-old banyan trees block the sun from the sky, so light and shadow can only shake down from the leaves.Let the farmers passing through this scene, have a hazy lithe silhouette.The thousand-year-old banyan tree in Baekgye, which blocks the sun, looks like a paradise.The sunrise of worm flower bamboo, sunset of east wall, tiger skin beach of Beiqi and towering banyan maple of Yacheng all attract millions of camera-raising visitors to this county with a population of only 500,000 every year.In this photo-taking town, even taxi drivers can extol composition tips and aperture shutter parameters.When the raw scenery is too coarse to meet the growing demand for pictures, fishermen putting nets, farmers pulling oxen, old women carrying loads, even silent livestock and smoke matching with the Dundar effect will actively play props and integrate into the scenery.Attracted to the photo, friends will never be surprised by the price tag of the photos.After all, A Bite of China once commented that Xiapu is “a combination of artificial and nature that has evolved myriad visual scenes”.Undeniably, it is the traces of artificial carving that make xiapu especially attractive in the net picture.Charming Ha-po in a Bite of China.In addition to these large shadows that can only be appreciated from angles, timing and even later stages, Xiapu, with its back to the mountains and its face to the sea, still preserves the most primitive natural beauty.”County southwest xiapu River, east into the sea.There is Also Xiapu Mountain, and in the sea are the four islets of The Green, black, Yuan and Yellow islands. The sun shines brightly, and the river is like the color of the xiapu.”Xiapu a origin, has been the scenery can play the bottom of the spirit written on the face.There are ten thousand mu of grasslands, lakes and islands in one, known as the “Wugong Mountain on the sea” Dayu Island, and the north looks at Yandang zhejiang, the west looks at Wuyi Fujian, and the former two known as the three famous fujian and Yue mountains taimu Mountain.△ Dayushan Island, a meadow in the sea.The huanggang mountain in east China sea is broken by the crustal movement, which is eroded by the sea breeze and washed by the current.Uncanny workmanship of natural carving, gave birth to various forms, capricious arrangement of stones.They stack up into dangerous peaks, hiding quiet caves.With the rising sea of clouds, Xiapu became the capital of the east of Fujian.And in the southwest foot of Taimu Mountain, from the mountain out of the clear spring has become a clear stream around yangjia Creek.When autumn is getting thick, the fenglin on both sides of the stream is dyed, like a curtain of goatfish floating above the clear water.Winding streams lead to bamboo row, simple villages also have the warm and moist temperament of Mount Wuyi.Beautiful Hapo.Xie Bangyan, a poet in the Northern Song Dynasty, wrote a poem for his hometown, “Ten miles of bay ring a pu-yan, mountains and water show two fresh yan.”Xiapu, walking in the atlas, has been looking at mountains and rivers since ancient times.Located at the junction of Yangtze River Delta and Pearl River Delta, Xiapu, facing Taiwan across the sea, has a coastline of 486 kilometers and a vast sea area of nearly 30,000 square kilometers.In Xiapu, you can not only witness the elegant demeanor of “the most beautiful beach”, but also eat the best kelp and laver in China.On the mudflats of more than 700 mu, a single bamboo pole weighing 200 jin was inserted.The bamboo array woven into a net is xiapu to bring kelp and laver land into the bag.▷ Beach at sunset.The history of laver cultivation in Xiapu can almost be traced back to the Yuan Dynasty.Xiapu, which now accounts for less than a quarter of Fujian’s total sea area, has natural water quality far from urban pollution and has become the largest laver cultivation base in China, supplying two-thirds of the country’s total laver.The frequent ebb and flow of the tide allows Marine algae to both obtain nutrients from the water and be fully exposed to sunlight to synthesize nutrients.Therefore, Xiapu, which occupies the right place at the right time, is not only the land of laver growth, but also gives birth to thick and juicy kelp.Hapo is the largest laver farm in Korea.Every Year around May or June, xiapu people harvest kelp season.Planting kelp is to see the weather to eat the live, mature kelp out of the water must be immediately dried, in rainy days or soak in the sea for too long, will rot.So every sunny day, black ribbons pulled from the sea spring up and occupy this vibrant land.Fields, roadside clearings, idle mudflats, even raised hills were not spared.Steel cables stretched from the top of the mountain all the way to the foot, each covered with seaweed waiting to be dehydrated.The harvest season of kelp is almost the busiest time of the year for xiapu villagers. At four o ‘clock in the morning when the first light falls, the villagers begin to stretch out kelp to dry.When the sun cleared at six o ‘clock in the afternoon, we were busy fishing fresh kelp from the sea.Villagers working hard in Hapo.Xiapu takes the “sea to sea” approach quite thoroughly. In addition to growing kelp and nori, local fishermen also go out to sea to pick barnacles.Barnacles are plankt-eating arthropods that congregated on wave-washed reefs.To harvest the biggest, fleshy barnacles, fishermen travel to reefs dozens of nautical miles from land and harvest them just two to three hours after low tide and before high tide.▽ Picking barnacles.Trying to survive the sea is tough.But the ocean also rewards the hardworking and brave Xiapu fishermen with delicious food and joy.During the idle fishing season, xiapu people gather the strength of the whole village to hold dragon boat races.The clear water of the sea and a wide variety of fish also attract sea fishing enthusiasts from all over the place to feel the happiness of one person one pole to open the blind box.Xiapu will never let these distant guests go home disappointed.In the face of surprising gifts from the ocean, it is also popular to print fish with clear scales in ink and wash paintings to remind fishermen of catches of large or rare species.Don’t ask the Xiapu people how many secrets are hidden in the sea, because even the most experienced fishermen may not be able to count them.Octopus, horseshoe crab, oyster, green crab and abalone will be on display according to the season.Baskets of oysters harvested in Xiapu, Ningde, Fujian province.Every night, the food stall on Xiapu Taikang Road becomes a museum of Marine life.More than 700 kinds of seafood are stored in the freezer, which will not be the same for half a year.In addition to the common species, Xiapu also has mudfish, razor clam, and barnacles adsorbed on the reef.The raw materials are eye-opening, and the eating method is also very unique. The fresh seafood celebrities come ashore, in addition to the conventional opening methods of white burning and steaming, they also unlock the vigorous practice of drunkenness with lees.▷ You can eat the sea from the sea all year round.As the saying goes, “Seafood from Fujian comes from Xiapu”.Those who have been conquered by xiapu’s sea during the day and restaurants at night will believe that the pride of this combination of diligence and talent will continue in the hometown of aquatic products, where “seafood is free and frugality belongs to you”.In fact, xiapu can make it proud of the length of Fujian, in addition to the coastline, there is history.Jin Taikang three years to build the county, more than 1700 years ago, Xiapu so became the oldest ancient city in eastern Fujian.With more than 400 islands scattered across the country and a thousand years of history, xiapu, an ancient city in Eastern Fujian, has a silky, slow look.Compared with the crowded places, the stone houses near the sea, hundreds of floating cages and wooden houses, and the legend of “gypsies on the sea” are the best proof that Xiapu is not disturbed by the outside world.Hwajukchon is a good place to watch the sunrise.More than 1,000 years ago, the She people, who lived in the coastal areas, moved northward from Fenghuang Mountain in Chaozhou, and moved to Xiapu in Ningde, where they lived a peaceful life without any questions about the world.In the distance from xiapu county 30 kilometers, she people living in half a month, she can still see the she people “nest cliff, hunting its industry, farming mountain and food” traditional customs, as well as “woven bark, dyed with fruit, good five color clothes” living habits.▷ She who makes needle and thread.The peaceful and peaceful Xiapu attracts not only chaozhou people, but also countless Fishermen from Southern Fujian. They take their boats and belongings to Sansha, the closest place to the coast, to make a living by fishing.Thus, the ancient city of eastern Fujian began to have the tone and taste of southern Fujian.Here, you can eat southern Fujian paste that you can’t find anywhere in southern Fujian.In order to relieve their homesickness, the minnan people who moved to Sansha made a special “Minnan paste” by mixing sweet potato flour with water.Stir – fry the sweet potato flour with lean pork, dried bamboo shoots, dried mushrooms and red shrimps from Sansha until they become transparent.On the way out, sprinkle a handful of chopped peanuts over a bowl of leek green prawn red.△ Quanju noodle paste.Such fragrant, smooth taste of national cuisine, diners will be “every mouthful is a treasure of mountains and seafood” unanimous praise.Therefore, Minnan paste can not only occupy the C position in the street breakfast shop, witness where xiapu people’s day begins;It can also serve as a staple food in a lively wedding banquet and become the password of the taste buds associated with important moments in life.You can see the paste on the sides of the pot, oyster frying, fish ball soup, meat and swallow fillet everywhere, so that Xiapu has become another Southern Fujian in the space of flavor domain.Can be fine under the taste, still can taste the east of Fujian unique obsession, that is to put a little more sugar when making paste soup with noodles.If the southern Fujian is full of a casual and friendly fireworks, then in the “food culture spread through the ages” in the eastern Fujian area, Xiapu will not lack of “heavy soup heavy taste” of eastern Fujian.▷ Hapo is full of delicious food.At the time when shrimp seedlings change shells, the soft-shell shrimp seedlings are mashed with salt and sealed in a huge pottery urn with white wine.After a month of natural fermentation, the result is a jaw-dropping shrimp sauce.Whether it’s used as a dipping sauce or as an everyday condiment for steamed eggs or pork belly, it’s a real carb-killer.Scattered on the shore are the ruins of shellfish mound, xiapu people and seafood has been a faithful record of three or four thousand years.Whether it is shrimp seedling making sauce, or melon seeds being peeled and boiled for seasoning when white fried seafood, let time dominate the flavor. Perhaps it is the highest wisdom of Xiapu people who have made friends with the ocean for so many years.1. When a county becomes a “scenic spot”, people 2. Umami flavor, Southern Fujian flavor, homely flavor, Xiapu delicious, the sea comes to the gourmet planet
