Ever Heard An old Chinese proverb – “We the Chinese conquered the world through our food.”
Chinese food isn’t just delicious & soft. It’s also gentle, bright and aromatic. Salt and pepper squid, a plate of steaming hot dim sums & semi-numbing chilli chicken are some of the most loved Chinese delicacies that belong to 1 of the 6 important culinary territorial cuisines in China – Mandarin, Hunan, Hakka, Zhejiang, Cantonese and Sichuan.
Some of the ingredients are common in between these regions – soy sauce, ginger, bean paste, garlic, vinegar, sesame oil and scallions. But other ingredients like Worcestershire sauce, fish sauce and oyster sauce are very specific and provide each cuisine with its own uniqueness.
Cantonese cuisine is the culinary method of Canton which is a province in Southern China. People around the world are better known for this unique style of Chinese food as it encloses on sweet and spicy. Sweet & sour pork, honey-roasted pork, caramelized duck, and barbecued meats are some of the gem foods of Cantonese cuisine. Cantonese food is special because of the real freshness of its taste, ingredients and dim sums are its prized invention.
The balanced combination of everything hot and spicy stands out for Sichuan cuisine. In Here, food is monochromatically flaming and repeated use of chillies and Sichuan peppers glitter through in each and every dish. People from the Sichuanese province cure their own meats, make their own pickles and prepare in large pots with a bundle of fragrant stock.
Hunan cuisine, which is also called Xiang cuisine, originated from a province that has often referred as the land of Rice and Fish. Food items from this cuisine are mainly rich in oil, intense and densely coloured. It’s mainly popular for its broad use of chilli peppers, garlic and shallots.
Mandarin cuisine is from the northern regions of China and is easy than the rest of its opposite part. Mandarin cuisine is beautifully balanced & uses little of spice, sweet and everything nice. Hot and sour soup, Peking duck, fried shrimps, salt and pepper chicken are some of the main examples.
Chinese food items are meant to be eaten with chopsticks and you’ll find this practice common in most of the Chinese households. Long years ago the use of knife and fork was believed to represent the violence but chopsticks represent compassion and gentleness.
