The channel features cooking demonstrations by Dianxi Xiaoge, set in the Yunnan province of Southwest China in a perfectly idyllic rustic setting. The recipes are of traditional Chinese local fare, season ingredients prepared in a traditional way.
We don’t know much about the production, all that’s available on YouTube in the bio section is “I am a local Yunnan Girl. My name is 'Dianxi Xiaoge'. People who know well will call me 'Apenjie'. Both my families and the peaceful village are shown in my videos. I film seasonal ingredients, special local products, really anything that reflects the uniqueness of Yunnan cuisine, All the inspiration behind my video come from our daily meals.”
Dianxi Xiaoge has over a 6 million followers and over 200 million views since joining the platform in July of last year. The production quality is incredibly high for such a rustic setting and, seeing as YouTube is blocked in China, it’s possible that this channel is a government-backed tool to promote Yunnan culture. There is a substantial Facebook following also.
