Hosted by the Nantong City Culture, Radio, Television and Tourism Bureau, it displayed Nantong's signature cuisines, told stories behind the city's dishes, and promoted culinary culture.

It attracted nearly 240,000 viewings.

Bazhen shizitou (stewed meatballs), Haimen braised lamb in brown sauce, Baipu xiehuang (crab roe), yuyuan (fish meatballs), and Nantong clams, once tributary gifts to imperial courts, were introduced during the webcast.
