From Cantonese classics to spicy Sechuan: the different types of Chinese cuisine
China is a massive country and each region has its own specific cuisine, each with their own distinct characteristics and unique flavours. The most popular types of Chinese cuisine that are famous all over the world is Cantonese cuisine – known for its subtle flavours and lightly-cooked dishes, and extremely popular outside China due to the large number of emigrants from the Guangdong area. Sichuan cuisine – famous for its hot, spicy and pungent flavours, Shandong cuisine – developed from the Qi and Lu culture of ancient China and known for its use of expensive ingredients such as shark fin, abalone, sea cucumber, deer meat and white fungus, and Su cuisine – a fusion of Northern and Southern cuisines originating from the Suzhou, Yangzhou and Hangzhou areas of China.
