of different styles contribute to Chinese cuisine but perhaps the
best known and most influential are Cantonese cuisine, Shandong
cuisine, Jiangsu cuisine (specifically Huaiyang cuisine) and Szechuan
cuisine. These styles are distinctive from one another due to factors
such as availability of resources, climate, geography, history,
cooking techniques and lifestyle. One style may favour the use of
lots of garlic and shallots over lots of chilli and spices, while
another may favour preparing seafood over other meats and fowl.
Dim sum, literally "touch your heart", is a Cantonese
term for small hearty dishes.These bite-sized portions are prepared
using traditional cooking methods such as frying, steaming, stewing
and baking. It is designed so that one person may taste a variety
of different dishes. Some of these may include rice rolls, lotus
leaf rice, turnip cakes, buns, jiaozi-style dumplings, stir-fried
green vegetables, congee porridge, soups, etc. The Cantonese style
of dining, yum cha, combines the variety of dim sum dishes with
the drinking of tea. Yum cha literally means 'drink tea'.
Sichuan (spelled Szechuan), is a style of Chinese cuisine originating
from the Sichuan Province of southwestern China famed for bold flavors,
particularly the pungency and spiciness resulting from liberal use
of garlic and chili peppers, as well as the unique flavor of the
Sichuan peppercorn, and Facing heaven pepper, Peanuts, sesame paste
and ginger are also prominent ingredients in this style.
Jiangsu favours cooking techniques such as braising and stewing,
while Sichuan cuisine employs baking, just to name a few.
