At the first Dong Thap Lotus Festival 2022 themed "Lotus of a new day", 10 culinary experts and 50 chefs were on hand to process and present 200 delicacies made from the various parts of the lotus plant, such as lotus root, lotus flower stem, lotus leaf, and lotus seed heart. After completion, 200 dishes are presented in the shape of a 10-petal lotus bloom.
A giant lotus growing area, Dong Thap expects the awarding will help it boost lotus industry and exports of lotus-based specialties.
