After a brief talk with my friends, we decided Jianbing was the best choice. We are all passionate about food and we also live in Beijing. Jianbing is a Beijing delicacy and we all lived in Beijing for over 10 years. All of us felt like this was more than learning about the food and we also learn about the culture of Beijing. Food is an important part of the Chinese culture, and mastering it is essential.
For the first couple of times we made the Jianbing, we were not successful; however, none of us gave up. We kept trying with the help of the chef. Eventually, we did it! Persistency was something that we were good at.
After today’s experience, we learned how to make 煎饼and how hard working the 煎饼 chefs are (making 煎饼is not easy!).
To make a perfect 煎饼, one needs to have a perfect 饼; however, making a round, big 饼 isn’t easy. We failed several times, sometimes it’s not round enough, thin enough, gets ripped, too little batter… etc. We got better after practices and learning from our mentor chef
We ate all of the Jianbing we made and did not 浪费 (Waste)
One Day is a student-led learning day. Middle school students design their own learning and follow their passions using the whole day. One Day is important because we students get to choose from a myriad of different activities and cultures and experience one through an extraordinary way. We also have the opportunity to learn about local cultures and activities will contribute to the diversity of ISB, as well as how to respect the cultures everywhere. One Day is a unique way of learning and experiencing cultures and activities that will help us grow in a lot of different ways.
