In the Chinese cultural, hot pot is a type of foods that represents a sense of group activity. Family members and friends gather together not only to eat hot pot but also to enjoy the quality time with each other. People would sit around a round table and have a pot of boiling soup in the center. Everybody has the access to each ingredient and is free to cook whatever he/she desires any time and simply dip it into the pot and wait till it’s done. As a result hot pot has already become one of the delicacies people must have in special occasions as well as in ordinary meet ups.

Besides the cities in China, 80+1 also wishes to show Linzers one of the most representative eating cultures of Chinese people. Consequently to cook Chinese hot pot along with Austrian fondue, which shares similarities with the Chinese chafing, for people in Linz can provide them a more complete picture of what China is like.

Last month, the French postal service, known simply as La Poste, released a limited-edition set of stamps that yes, smell like chocolate.

They cost the same price of a normal 0,56€ French stamp, or you can get a sheet of ten for 5,60€.

Each one is designed with various chocolate-related imagery.

If only La Poste would come out with different scented stamps! Imagine the possibilities! Neopolitan letters, anyone?
