In the past, people from northeastern China had little food to eat due to the cold weather, so they'd kill a home-raised pig to make dishes celebrating Spring Festival.

Nowadays, although there are plenty of food to consume, those in Harbin are still obsessed with dishes made out of pork. Among them, stewed pickled cabbage with pork and black pudding is the most popular.

Li Yuanbao, a college graduate who just got an offer from a major accounting firm in Beijing, came back to his hometown Harbin to celebrate his success with "authentic pork cuisine".

"Without pork and black pudding, life seems incomplete to me. It's freezing in the winter in Harbin and this dish can warm your whole body," he said.
