Kempinski Hotel Beijing Hosts Three-Week Ningbo Food Festival

Beijing, China, 5 June 2023 – From 5 to 25 June, Dragon Palace, the Chinese restaurant of Kempinski Hotel Beijing Yansha Center, will house guest chef and Zhejiang culinary master Mo Chenkai, who will bring the distinct flavours of Ningbo to the capital city during the three-week long Ningbo Food Festival.

Ningbo, a city in southern China, is known for its unique terroir. It has crafted a culinary heritage that showcases the perfect blend of freshness and savoury flavours. Situated along the coast of the East China Sea and in close proximity to the renowned Zhoushan fishing ground, Ningbo boasts an abundance of seafood. Yongbang cuisine, the local specialty, is renowned for its mastery of salty and fresh flavours, often utilising salted or fermented seafood and vegetables.
