Ninghai is a coastal county in the city of Ningbo, East China's Zhejiang province. Lying between Tiantai Mountain and Siming Mountain, it boasts beautiful mountainous territory in the west and coastline in the east, and is famous for its abundance of ancient and rare trees, as well as its great variety of delicious seafood.
The name "Ninghai" means a peaceful sea gulf. Local people said that the roaring waves of the East China Sea would never enter this gulf, allowing the people here live and work in peace and contentment.
Ninghai is rich in natural resources, and the industrious local people have used these gifts from nature to create many delicious food dishes and crafts.
Maci, a local "green pancake" made from glutinous rice flour and mashed wormwood shoots, is a healthy and tasty local snack from Ninghai. People have the custom of making these pancakes in early spring, and they are considered to be truly "green" food as all the ingredients materials are natural.
