China launches first snail rice noodle college

Tired of your job and looking to get experience in a new and exciting field? Why not enroll at Chinas first snail rice noodle college?
The unusual institution was unveiled this week at the Liuzhou Vocational and Technical College in Guangxi.
As the name would suggest, the school will focus around teaching students how to prepare and market snail rice noodles, called luosifen () in Chinese.
In case youve never had a bowl, luosifen is the signature dish of Liuzhou. It consists of rice noodles served in a soup made from river snail and pork bone stock along with an assortment of herbs and spices and served with toppings like pickled bamboo shoots, wood ear mushrooms, and roasted peanuts.

While it began as just a local snack concocted by local minority groups, luosifen has already spread across the country and even around the globe.
Last year, authorities in Liuzhou applied for the dish to be placed on UNESCOs intangible cultural heritage list.
To help with luosifens global expansion, the college plans to recruit 500 students for the coming school year.

After graduation, they can go directly out into the exciting world of snail rice noodles.
