Mr. Chen Yifei once commented on the ancient town of Former Tong: The ancient town can be painted everywhere, especially the "quietness" here, which can give people a feeling of returning home, which is a bit strange.

Before entering the ancient town, you must first climb Lushan. Because the former boy spread out gracefully and calmly before Lushan and the tower mountain opposite it. Lushan is not high, but standing on the lawn-covered top of Lushan, you can truly feel the whole picture of Qiantong and see the scattered layout of Qiantong's ancient buildings.



In Ninghai, Zhejiang, there is such an ancient Jiangnan town with a history of more than 700 years. It is gentle, delicate and not public. Like everyone's lady in the deep house.


Compared with some popular Jiangnan ancient towns, I prefer Qiantong Ancient Town. This is still an ancient village with little commercial atmosphere.


Walking in the ancient town, I also saw the spider webs on the houses and the dilapidated dark walls, as well as the swaying old trees in the broken corners. It seemed to tell me the vicissitudes of this ancient city.



I like the ancient buildings that are still intact in Qiantong Ancient Town, as well as the exquisite Yueyu horse head wall and ridge plastic wall flower with the full carvings on the doors and windows of Liangyu, showing a unique local style.


The ancient town of Qiantong, from the Southern Song Dynasty to the Ming and Qing Dynasties, has kept the last breath of the old Jiangnan intact. When the wooden door was pushed open, time poured out from the bright bricks and the clear tiles, with a thousand-year-old ancient story, slowly dreaming.



Former children now have more than 2,000 families and nearly 10,000 people, almost all of whom are "child" surnames. Qiantong is different from most of the ancient towns in the south of the Yangtze River. There is no bridge here, only a canal that runs through the town in a gossip pattern.



Zhisiqiju, Wufu Linmen, Shijing Jingshe, Da Ancestral Hall, this ancient and precious ancient building shows Qian Tongdong's courage to penetrate ancient and modern.

The old house was relatively delicate, and it looked like a big family at the time.

There are only a few in this hall waiting for furnishings. The house on the side is inhabited.


In the courtyard, there was some peace, and the old lady was slowly dialing corn.


The courtyard is deep and simple farmhouse.

There are corn on the ground.



The ground is not a large block of bluestone slabs, but a finely broken pebble.

Old window.



Granny in the alley.

On the old street, people walked slowly, the puppy looked at me blankly. Seems still wondering, what this man squatted down to do.



Uncle cutting bamboo in front of the door.


After a while I went to sharpen the knife slowly, but his mouth kept smoking.



Granny walking in the deep alley.



The two brothers walked on the path.


Little girl washing clothes in a ditch.


The child took a snack at the door and looked at me timidly.

In 2005, the American painter Chen Yifei filmed the movie "Hairdresser" and traveled all over the town of Jiangnan, but eventually chose his ex-boy as the shooting location. The reason that touched Chen Dao was the simplicity and tranquility of the ex-children, which was authentic and did not experience much artificial destruction and transformation.


The barber shop in "Hairdresser" is a street-facing house, 20 square meters in size. The hostess said that Chen Yifei came to the ex-boy several times, and finally fancy it here. He used a dozen cars to bring more than a hundred people, making the town lively for a while.



Qiantong Folk Museum, which displays some local unique objects. And some traditional tools.



The courtyard is also covered with cobblestone flooring, and there are some exquisite patterns.



On the old windowsill, a pot of small plants was placed.



Various objects and plaques are displayed in the old house.


Flower sedan. It tastes great. Only as the years passed, it began to age.



It's been some years.


The Tong's Ancestral Hall is demonstrating old memories.



Azure is waiting for the rain and rain and I am waiting for you.


Legend has it that more than a thousand years ago, Emperor Liang Xuan emperor Liang Huangshan was taken refuge by the emperor.


Today, I went to visit the tofu home feast in Qiantong Ancient Town along with Yongyong's lens.


Qiantong Ancient Town, an ancient city that makes people feel sorry for it. Years, just settled here.

Beans are high-quality June beans in Ninghai; water is the clear mountain water of the ex-children, and the pulp is manually grinded with a stone mill, and the grass is fragrant when soy sprouts. Therefore, the tofu can retain the sweetness and sweetness of soybeans, This kind of fragrant sweetness cannot be called out by all kinds of spices.


21 processes, from soaking, refining, filter residue, and bittern, can not be careless. The ex-children also inherited this craft.



Former child Sambo, a courtesy.

The grated tofu will be boiled in this large wooden barrel.



Then apply pressure to the juice.



The tofu flowing out is tofu.



Point blending (point halogen): Pour the cooked soy milk into the vat. When the temperature of the milk drops to 90 ° C, pour 2 to 3 red halogens at 25 ° C, and stir evenly to prevent Sandwich. Stop when the snowflake-shaped tofu flower is turned up inside the tank, cover it, and press the tofu after 15 minutes.



Prepare the stamper.

Squeezed with two large stones on top.



After pressing and removing water, it becomes old tofu, basically these tofu are bought in the market.



However, if you want to make other tofu products, you need to continue to do several processes.
Wrap the tofu into small pieces with gauze.


The chef who made the tofu was clever with his soul and wrapped very quickly.




The wrapped tofu pieces continue to be pressed, squeezing out moisture.



This process lasts about ten minutes.



Then take it out to dry, wait for it to dry and then continue to the next process.



Xianggan is a product made by drying tofu in a marinated soup with seasoning.



The former child core rot has a long round shape and is hollow. It will be golden until fried. If you take a bite while hot, you will feel crispy. If you sprinkle it with salt and pepper, it will taste better.



Cooking smoke, we are ready to cook tofu.


The salad is dry and pure.
For senior foodies, a trip to Qiantong without experiencing the characteristics of Qiantong's Sambo and Tofu home feast was a vain run.


Qiantong Sambo refers to the three kinds of soy products produced here, namely Qiantong Tofu, Core Tofu and Xianggan. The superior geographical location and natural environment have created high-quality soybeans and clear and sweet water in Qiantong Ancient Town. The soy products produced are also extremely nutritious.


During the production process, seasonings such as salt, fennel, peppercorns, aniseed, and dried ginger are added, which are both fragrant and fresh, and cheap and good, which makes people eat for a long time.



Well, it's very pleasurable for the chef to fall into the pan to grasp the heat.



The former child core rot is hollow tofu. The former child core rot is long and hollow, and will be fried to golden color. If you take a bite while hot, you will feel crispy. If you sprinkle it with salt and pepper, it will be better.


The oily tofu looks very good.

Out of the pot


A tofu home feast came out.



Tofu Soup



Also known as "white tofu" and "old tofu" have three characteristics, one is fresh and white as jade, the other is delicate and smooth texture, and the third is to shake in the hands without falling, and toss in the soup for a long time without being broken. The taste is hidden in the light and delicious, but it can be used as a tribute in history.



Very tender and tastes good.



Yuba is also very fragrant.



There are many varieties of soy products from chives and tofu ex-children, which are derived from white tofu, dried fragrant, thousand pieces, hollow tofu, and tofu skin. Therefore, soy products alone can make a tofu home feast with a full range of flavors and aromas.

Today, Qiantong's tofu is still traditionally made by hand, and the simple taste has been refined over the years to become more mellow. When you come to the ancient town and find a small shop, visitors can enjoy the exquisite Qiantong family feast.
Qiantong Yishi Inn Ninghai

At first glance, the exterior wall of the inn looked like it was walking into the movie. From the moment I stepped into this old house, the story of travel began.
Double bed room, comfortable and atmosphere.


The communication area on the second floor is a small nest for tea tasting, creation, and communication. Here, there are exotic toys and pebbles soaked in snow water on the plateau for thousands of years. Read a book here, daze, talk about love.



The quaint stone windows, the texture of the blue bricks on the ground, and the oversized wooden bath barrels all represent legendary past.


Visiting such an ancient town is like accidentally regaining an old dream, accidentally turning into a wonderful story. After the silence, there are full of surprises.


Looking back at this beautiful old town again.
