Even she is now living in the dream life of many people, her life before fame was quite hard. Li Ziqi had a miserable childhood. After her parents divorced, she was abused by her stepmother. Since her father passed away, she became an orphan at a very young age. Afterward, her grandmother raised her in the remote Sichuan Mountains and gave the little girl lots of care and love. Before becoming a vlogger, she did various jobs including being DJ in bars.

There are numerous Chinese food making tutorial videos online, but Li Ziqis stands out. Why? It is because in her videos, the food making is not just pure cooking of any recipe, but presenting the whole process from planting, harvesting to cooking and eating.

She follows the traditional Chinese ideas about obeying nature and making use of it, which also displays the harmony between human beings and nature, and the survival wisdom of humans. All her videos can be classified according to the four seasons. Whatever grows best in this season, she just makes use of the essence of this time and make the classical Chinese food or create something new.

Sichuan has its reputation of food abundance which located in a basin with humid weather. Consequently, its not hard for her to find various natural materials to create what she wants. There are splendid flowers and productive fruits in each season, which are all the blessings of nature. Of course, Li Ziqi also plants and raised whatever she needs around her house such as corps, vegetables, sheep, chicken, etc. All the materials she used are made of wood or iron, basically no plastic products or something harmful to the natural environment. And she often wears her traditional style of Chinese clothes and rides a horse to pick up things like vegetables or flowers in the mountain which also constructs the scene of beauty. Its such a balance of traditional and modern life.

Besides the specialty from her hometown Sichuan like the spicy hotpot, she also makes some other classical food from other areas of China, such as very famous river snail rice noodle from Liuzhou Guangxi (lus fn)the drunk crabs from Jiangsu (zu xi) and etc. These videos make you feel interested in this wonderful local food and places around China.
