LIUZHOU -- On a sleepy morning with only cicadas singing, a young woman walks through a bamboo forest. She digs up sweet bamboo shoots and collects black fungus. On her way back, she stops at a clear stream to do some "treasure hunting." Contentedly, she wraps everything in a fresh lotus leaf.
In a video watched over 53 million times, the Chinese vlogger Li Ziqi shows how to make river snail rice noodles, or luosifen. A humble dish from Liuzhou in southwest China, it is recognized as an intangible cultural heritage of the Guangxi region.
