Dianxi Xiaoge’s Traditional Chinese Cooking is Mesmerising

As it’s Chinese New Year and we’re celebrating the magnificence all things associated with Chinese cuisine, we thought it might be an appropriate time to draw your attention to the YouTube channel of Dianxi Xiaoge.

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 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 knows 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 1 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.

Whatever the source of the videos, we can’t get enough of them. They are a valuable glimpse into Yunnan provincial culinary traditions that deserve to be seen.

    DIANXI XIAOGE is a poor layman's copycat. High quality settings? Hahahaha.....

    On top of that out of the 4 videos you posted, one of not from Dianxi Xiaoge.

    The video with the girl who was feeding the squirrel name is Li Ziqi. She is the original vlogger who recorded her own self. She was the one who started all these. Please don't associate the original vlogger with this poor copycat and remove her video link from this article.

    If you are not sure on what to write about them, please don't write as your facts are NOT ACCURATE!

    Ms Li Ziqi have stated on her YouTube channel that is she is the original vlogger who created this kind of production (before Dianxi Xiaoge surface). You should find out more about it before posting such poor article online. Dianxi Xiaoge has no production team.

    So there are more blind writers leading other blind writers. Your poorly research article is not the only one. Sad we are getting zero quality writers who does not do any research and you call yourself a writer?
