Sample answer

Well, I think zongzi is a traditional product in my country we have it every dragon ball festival. I first tried it when I was a kid. We all went to grandparents house for the festival at that time and my grandma made zongzi by herself.

She first mixed the meat and the sticky rice together and then she used the leaves to wrap them up and then a string to tie them up. So it was like a huge dumpling and then we boiled them in the water and when they were ready we removed the leaves and then ate it. It tasted very soft and sticky.

There were different kinds of flavors. You could put different stuffings like salty pork or soybeans. I really like the sweet ones and I remember at that time my grandmother also told me something interesting about this food. Actually, it was originated from a legendary story about a man called quyuan who was a minister in Asian china at that time when he heard that his country was defeated by another.

He was so devastated that he drowned himself into miluo river and local people made zongzi at that time, and threw them into the river in order to keep his body from the fish. So then we have the dragon ball festival to commemorate this great man today. We celebrate this festival by having zongzi and having boat race on the river. So I think zongzi is very traditional and it’s a symbol of Chinese history and culture.
