The West Anfeng Town Primary School in Baoying, Yangzhou, East China's Jiangsu province has rolled out classes that teach students how to make "Anfeng Boye", a locally-produced skin of soybean milk.
The class is part of the school's efforts to ease academic pressure on students and promote local culture.
Anfeng Boye is a municipal-level intangible cultural heritage and a national geographical indication product.
Hu Huabing is a representative inheritor of the technique of making Anfeng Boye and has been in the business for nearly 40 years. He is invited by the primary school to teach the students about the craft after class every Thursday.
Students can learn grinding soybeans, making soybean milk and Boye in the class.
