Making noodles by hand

Today I watched a street vendor make noodles, and took a video of the action.

It was wonderful. He was so clever.

Now I see a video on China Daily showing the noodle maker at work and am sharing the link here for you.

It all comes from this finely ground white powder, soft to touch, yet essential to our existence. On the way flour turns into noodle, however, there is some magic involved.

They knead it and beat it.

They slice it and dice it.

They fling it and swing it.

They wiggle it and jiggle it.

They make it long enough to go around the city, and as thin as a strand of hair.

They turn it into a feat for the eye – before turning it into a delight for the palate.

In Shanxi, you can have the magic and eat it, too.
