A New Epithet for Hangzhou - The Veg Capital of Southeastern China, Part 2 of 2

With the natural advantage of its geographic location and favourable temperate conditions, the Hangzhou City government, in recent years has been leading the effort of promoting the veg culture development nationwide, as well as reaching out globally, with a new epithet for the city - “The Veg Capital of Southeastern China.” In May 2019, one of the world’s largest vegan lifestyle expos known as Veggie World - which is currently held in 18 cities across eight countries - chose Hangzhou as its first point of entry into China. This eye-opening expo introduced Chinese consumers to the global vegan trend, and the healthy, green, and natural vegan lifestyle. To celebrate International Vegetarian Day, the city’s Commerce Bureau sponsored the fourth Hangzhou Vegan Culture Festival in November, 2019. The event was organized by the Hangzhou Vegan Association and held at the Xiangji Temple square. Many fascinating activities were held, such as food tasting, introduction of the benefits of eating veg, and cultural exchanges, encouraging Hangzhou citizens to follow the compassionate trend of a plant-based diet. “And if Chinese blaze the trail on vegetarianism, then we will have hope. We have more hope, a lot more hope to save this Earth for our next generations, so that they live in health, happiness, and possibly spirituality.”

A New Epithet for Hangzhou - The Veg Capital of Southeastern China, Part 1 of 2

Located in southeastern China, the coastal city of Hangzhou is well-known since ancient times for the flourishing development of Buddhism,and has long been reputed as the “Buddhist Capital of Southeastern China.” Its history of the plant-based diet can be traced back even further. During that time, many truth seekers came to Lingyin Temple to pray to be cleansed, gain wisdom, learn and embrace a plant-based diet, while searching deeply for their true nature. In 2016, the “Xiangji Vegetarian Culture” was designated as an “Intangible Cultural Heritage” of Hangzhou City, paving a very important milestone for veg development in China. Talked about far and wide, Yu Hua Zhai is a free-to-dine vegan restaurant! Here, the vegan culture has been elevated from compassion for all beings, to the selfless awareness that the whole universe is connected as One. Located next to the Xixi Wetland in Hangzhou, “Wukong’s Home” is housed in an old and simple structure of unique tranquility. Governmental support has greatly contributed to the prosperous development of the veg industry in Hangzhou today. What has made it even more encouraging is, in 2017, the city government published a book called “Veg in Hangzhou - Food Discovery in Southern China”. “We hope that the industry will integrate the rich veg cultural tradition with the scientific concept of a healthy and green veg diet, and strive to establish the city as the ‘Veg Capital of Southeastern China.’”

Vegan Costa Rican Traditional Cuisines, Part 1 of 2 - Gallo Pinto & Handmade Tortilla

Today, we are honored to have Marianella with us. She will show us how to make the vegan version of traditional Costa Rican breakfast, Gallo Pinto, as well as handmade tortillas that are popular in Central America. Marianella is the owner of the Green Vurgers Restaurant, a small vegan restaurant located in San Pedro, San José, Costa Rica. As its name suggests, Green Vurgers specializes in offering vegan burgers as a way of introducing veganism to the general public. “The main feature of the Gallo Pinto is its vibrant colors. You can see the red, brown from the beans and lots of the greens. It is very appetizing. Now we are going to make handmade tortillas from Central America. First, we roll the dough into balls. We can use any type of container to flatten the tortilla dough. We grease it with a little「olive oil」. There it is. This tortilla, when it moves easily, it means that it is ready. We can see that this type of breakfast is quite substantial.”
