Chinese Food in Manchester 1

2 November 2015

China can be divided into many geographical areas, and each area has a distinct style of cooking. Can you name them?

Food has a special meaning to the Chinese people. The "waste not, want not" ethos means that a surprising range and variety of plants and animals, and every part of a plant or animal is used. This has given rise to a remarkable diversity in regional cuisine, but to Westerners it can be overwhelming - surprising, fantastic, delicious, horrifying or disgusting - but above all, different.

China can be divided into many geographical areas, and each area has a distinct style of cooking. Eight different cooking styles, which are based on the natural agricultural products of the region, are:

  • Cantonese Cuisine /Yue Cuisine
  • Sichuan Cuisine
  • Shandong Cuisine
  • Fujian Cuisine
  • Jiangsu Cuisine
  • Hunan Cuisine
  • Anhui Cuisine 
  • Zhejiang Cuisine
