Overview of Chinese Hotpot Club
We want to create a safe homelike space for first year Chinese students by baking Hotpot. Because Hotpot in China is more than a delicious food that enjoys the wordly reputation. It is also the symbol of family atmosphere and coziness. By gathering around the hotpot, and everyone participates in dipping the raw materials in the boiling pot, this process creates the intimacy that stimulates closeness and conservations.
That is why families in China would enjoy hotpot altogether for New Year's eve or other occation, especially in winter. We want the first year Chinese students here to also have this "taste of home".
