The 24 solar terms reflect the changes in climate, natural phenomena, agricultural production, and other aspects of life. This lecture will talk about typical Chinese food and drinks related to the terms and how they help to cure diseases and maintain health. Tastings: baijiu (a sorghum-based alcoholic beverage), rice wine and Chinese dishes.
