Therefore, rich people like to use silver cutlery to preserve food. This approach still exists today in some of China's ethnic minorities, if you have been to the grasslands to play, it is not difficult to find the grassland nomads who like to use silverware as tableware.

Especially important guests to the grasslands, the highest courtesy of the reception is to use silver bowls of horse milk wine for guests. The silver bowl not only symbolizes nobility and purity but also delays food decay and can well ensure the original mellow taste of horse milk wine.
