The Banquet

In Asia, there is a feast for every occasion, whether it be Thanksgiving, harvest, or a new year. Asians are fond of hosting feasts where the entire village can gather to eat together and be merry. Feasts are Asia’s cultural spectacle - the street banquets of China’s Hani tribe, the festivals of Taiwanese Hakkas, the Tibetan Shoton Festival feasts of the wild, Japanese buckwheat carnivals, India’s largest kitchen serves 50,000 free meals daily. Behind the mélange of textures, flavours and colours lie a deeper, historical significance and cultural resonance. The feasting and merrymaking last for days without end. In partaking
of the feasts, a communion is formed. In that communion, ties and lives are bound as one.
