Project Description

Length:  10mins32secs

Director: Michael Fuller


Filmmaker, actor, and professional cook Michael Fuller travels to the Northeast of China to elevate his culinary expertise in the pursuit of profound flavours.  In the process he hopes to absorb the deep Manchu culture and heritage that has been passed down through many generations, specifically through the Ulla Manchu Hot Pot.

He has a chance to meet with the 4th generation inheritor of the “Fengjiyuan” Manchu Ulla Hotpot, Jia Cheng Ming, who is passionate about honoring his ancestors and their traditions, and upholding this history for generations to come.  Mr. Jia hopes to preserve the original flavour, and with it, the memories of time-honored techniques.
