Dasheen Dumping, Shaoxing
As the traditional specialty snack of Xinchang County, Shaoxing Province, Dasheen Dumping has a history of several hundreds of years. Since Xinchang is located in the mountainous area, the local people could hardly eat fish during the Spring Festival in the past. Because dasheen and fish pronounce alike in Chinese, the mountain men would make some dasheen dumping to relieve the thirst for fish. Cooked with golden dasheen as the main ingredient, dasheen dumping has elegant color and beautiful shape, glutinous, smooth and delicious.
