THE MOUTHWATERING HARMONY OF...CHINESE CUISINE

Chinese cooking is as much an art as it is a means of nourishment, with presentation, flair and entertainment as much a part of the meal as the food itself. No wonder the world has fallen in love with its flavours and traditions. The taste of Chinese food is traditionally balanced into five key categories — salty, spicy, sour, sweet and bitter — that come together to create a delicious harmony of flavours.

TASTE OF CHINA

The role of rice is very important in China — particularly as a major food staple for people from rice farming areas in Southern China, who turn these fluffy white grains into congee (a type of rice pudding) for breakfast.

DID YOU KNOW?

When visiting a friend in China you’ll certainly be served a pot of tea — as their national beverage it’s an essential part of being a good host.


In China, the roundness of the full moon means ‘togetherness’ and is very special. During the Mid-Autumn Festival the harvest moon is at its fullest which is cause for celebration!

THE SIGNATURE FLAVOUR OF THE CHINESE CUISINE

Dark & light soy sauce

Soy sauce is must-have for Chinese cooking, giving it that distinct savoury Umami flavour, but which is best for what? Light Soy is a great all-rounder that tastes saltier, but doesn’t colour your food too heavily, while Dark Soy tends to be thicker, coating your dish in a deliciously rich colour and flavour.
