Best Chinese Regional Cooking Delights and Food Culture

Chinese Cuisine and Food Culture


Food has a special meaning to the Chinese people.  They eat a surprising range and variety of plants and animals, and every part of a plant or animal is used in Chinese Cuisine. The Chinese use all the methods of cooking from Stir-frying, Deep-frying, Steaming, Red-stewing, Boiling, Barbecuing, Roasting, Cold-mixing and poaching. A typical banquet consists of four appetizer dishes, such as cold cut platters or hot hors d'oeuvres; six to eight main courses. The Chinese Food Culture can be divided into the Northern and Southern styles of cooking. Northern Chinese Cooking dishes are oily without being cloying, and the flavors of vinegar and garlic tend to be more distinct.

Pasta plays an important role in Northern Chinese cooking; noodles, ravioli-like dumplings, steamed stuffed buns, fried meat dumplings, and steamed bread are favored flour-based treats. The cooking of Peking, Tientsin, and Shantung are perhaps the best known area styles of Northern Chinese cuisine. The Southern Chinese Cooking Styles are Szechwan and Hunan cuisine, famous for their liberal use of chili peppers; the Kiangsu and Chekiang styles, which emphasize freshness and tenderness; and Cantonese food, which tends to be somewhat sweet, and full of variety. Rice and rice products such as rice noodles, rice cakes, and rice congee, are the usual accompaniments to Southern style cooking.
