The Chinese Cusine

Many unique regional food styles contribute to the China’s extensive cuisine. The most well known of the 8 different cooking styles are Cantonese, Shandong, Jiangsu and Szechuan cuisine forms. These types are distinctive from one another due to the available products, climate and geography, historical influences, variations in cooking techniques and population lifestyles.

Whilst one regional style may emphasize garlic and shallots versus chili and spices, another favors seafood ingredients over meats or poultry. Sichuan cuisine is spicier with a fondness for baking, whereas Jiangsu recipes call more on braising and stewing techniques. The ‘hairy crab,’ found in local lakes, is a popular menu item in Shanghai. The world-renowned Peking Duck is famous dish everywhere around the planet, not just in China.
