THE FRUIT OF HIS LABORS

By Li Yingxue | China Daily | Updated: 2018-10-12 07:40

After five decades, Wang Zhiqiang continues to push the boundaries of traditional Chinese pastry making, Li Yingxue reports.

You could be fooled into thinking you were looking at a plate of fresh fruit. A strawberry, apple, pear, persimmon and carambola, each one invites you to bite into their juicy flesh. However, all the fruits on this plate have one thing in common - they are not what they seem and they all share one ingredient: flour. They are called mianguo, or "flour-based fruits".

Dubbed the "king of pastry", 70-year-old Wang Zhiqiang - who became a pastry chef for Chinese state banquets in his 20s - created mianguo with his apprentices.
