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
