Four Major Chinese Cooking Styles

The consumption of food is a vital part of our human life. The choice of food represents the culture. In China, over the centuries, the special dishes of one region have been adopted and adapted in other regions. New dishes and ingredients are constantly being incorporated into their menus. Altogether, these cooking styles can be classified into four major regional styles.

Cantonese:
Cantonese dishes are characterized as light and naturally flavored. In order to best preserve the natural flavor, texture and color of the ingredients, Cantonese chefs often rely on two quick cooking techniques - stir-frying and steaming.

Shanghai:
Shanghai cooking is more closely identified with the Cantonese style. Steaming and stir-frying are central.

Szechuan and Hunan:
The food of both are characteristically spicy and peppery hot. Hot red pepper is the key seasoning in all dishes. The purpose of the pepper is to arouse the senses so that complex flavors beneath the heat become obvious and can be savored.

Peking:
The Peking cooking style represents the north. This regional cooking is diverse. Some dishes are robust with concentrated flavor. Others are oily and spicy without being hot. Some Peking dishes are sophisticated with subtle flavors and soft, smooth textures. Garlic, scallion and ginger are used in surprising quantities.
