Chinese Cuisine
Popular in its iconic take-out boxes, there isn’t any part of the world that isn’t familiar with Chinese cuisine.
It’s fast, delicious, with a whole range of choices to choose from carbohydrates, to vegetables, meats and
seafood plus interesting desserts plus the fortune cookie picked up with a piece of paper that reads your
fortune. These fortune cookies have been also marketed to be wedding favors or party favors with a little
twist of creativity. Just like food history, Chinese food’s history dates back to centuries ago and change
from period to period. With eight culinary traditions with different characteristics, China has various
flavors and dishes under its belt cooked and prepared in many different ways–braised, salted, fermented,
                                                        pickled, the list goes on.

                                                       As the westerners favor bread, the major staple food
                                                       of China is rice. It is usually eaten steamed or stir-fried
                                                       with vegetables and meat. Either way, it’s eaten with
                                                       other dishes. Rice is also used to make other
                                                       products, used for cooking or beverage. Another
                                                       carbohydrate source is noodles, either in soup form or
                                                       served fried with other ingredients. According to the
                                                       Chinese, noodles symbolize longevity and are often
                                                       served in birthday celebrations.

                                                     Protein sources are again, seafood, meat, and poultry.
                                                     Tofu is also used as another protein source. Also from
                                                     soy comes another popular Chinese condiment – soy
                                                     sauce, which is used to add flavor to dishes, soups, or
as a dipping sauce to dim sum – dumplings already bite-size and usually served as an appetizer. Bok Choy
is a popular vegetable in many side dishes, noodle dishes, and as an edible garnish in main dishes. Peking
duck or Beijing roast duck is another well-known dish and is still popular among many restaurants today.
Other duck dishes in Chinese cuisine are
Jinling salted dried duck, Nanjing’s most
famous dish and also dried duck.

At the end of the meal, tea is served with
dessert such as jellies with fruit or deep-friend
mantou served with sweetened condensed
milk. Ice creams and shaved ice are also
popular. Tea also has different choices such
as green tea, black tea, oolong tea, and there
are also herbal teas drunk for medicinal
purposes.

Due to immigration and globalization, Chinese
food has evolved and some traditional dishes
and favorites are mixed with other culture’s
popular dishes resulting in fusion cuisine,
therefore new dishes are created with dishes
from two different countries as inspirations
or basis for this new dish. So the story of food does not end here yet.
