Take a look at the videos below to watch Chef Zhang in action.

Demonstrations will be held in the China pavilion on select days throughout the Festival so be sure to check the Festival Times Guide for performance times. “The Dragon’s Beard candy is crafted in small batches by Chef Zhang so quantities will be limited. Due to the time-consuming preparation needed for these unique candies, the demonstrations will be on alternating dates.”
