Chinese cuisine: the most popular Asian food
Today Chinese food is popular all over the world, but it is an ancient cuisine linked to Chinese spirituality and lifestyle. Like in Spain, food in China is a key aspect of celebrations and social events. In line with the concept of yin and yang, this oriental cuisine always strives for a balance between flavours, colours, textures and temperatures. That's why it boasts such a wide range of ingredients and techniques. Colour, flavour, aroma and presentation are key. In fact, the aroma that emanates from a dish is essential for the Chinese, which is why they use spices such as cinnamon and aniseed to reduce the intense smell of some meats and fish. In addition to cooking techniques such as steaming and frying, the way foods are cut and prepared is vital.
Authentic Chinese cuisine
The main ingredients in Chinese cooking are rice and noodles (made of wheat or rice) and condiments such as soy sauce, ginger, garlic, spring onions, bamboo shoots, mushrooms and coriander. Chinese cuisine uses a wide variety of meats (chicken, beef, pork, poultry, etc.), fish, shellfish and tofu, which are normally combined with lightly cooked vegetables such as bean sprouts, pak choi and Chinese cabbage. The aim is to produce attractive dishes with delicious aromas and a balance between textures, flavours and colours.
