What is the most favorite (喜爱 xǐ ài) cuisine in winter (冬天 dōng tiān) China? Hot pot (火锅 huǒ guō) would take the Top One place without any doubt (怀疑 huái yí). Hot pot goes with a simmering metal pot at the center (中间 zhōng jiān) of the table, with raw (生的 shēng de) food spreading around it. Food is then placed (放 fàng) into the boiling water (水 shuǐ) and cooked instantly (立刻 lì kè) with fresh (新鲜 xīn xiān) scent (香味 xiāng wèi) and taste (味道 wèi dao). You can put almost everything you like into a hot pot: lamb (羊肉 yáng ròu), fish (鱼 yú), beef (牛肉 niú ròu), spinach (菠菜 bō cài), tofu (豆腐 dòu fu), etc. Hot pot style (种类 zhǒng lèi) varies among different regions (地区 dì qū) of China. Sichuan style tends to be extremely spicy (辣 là), while Beijing style uses special (特别的 tè bié de) copper pot as shown in the picture. Why (为什么 wèi shén me) hot pot is so hot in winter China? It is believed that not only the great taste, but also the atmosphere of family and friends getting together makes the dinner so warm (温暖 wēn nuǎn) in winter time.
