Intangible cultural heritage flowery flour buns in Shaanxi Province

China’s flowery flour buns, also called “mianhua” in Chinese, are a kind of flower-shaped steamed bun that is very common in north China. Every year, around the Qingming Festival when people honor their ancestors, each household in Zizhou County of Shaanxi Province would make flowery flour buns in different shapes as a tradition. It’s not only food, but also art, as women use knives and scissors to make animals in vivid shapes. Take a look at some exquisite flowery flour buns!
