Chinese meals are generally based around two main elements: firstly, a starchy "main food"
(Mandarin Chinese: Zhushi) dish such as noodles, rice or steamed
buns ("mantou"), and secondly, accompanying meat, seafood or vegetables (Mandarin Chinese: Cŕi).
It would wrong however to think of China as simply being
home to a single cuisine. Each region of the country has developed
its uniquely culinary style, and additionally overseas Chinese communities
around the world have both adapted traditional Chinese dishes, and developed
entirely new dishes.
Some popular Chinese dishes include:
Here are some recipe books and cookbooks for
- Baozi (xiaolongbao) - Steamed buns usually containing meat soup (sometimes seafood or vegetables may
be used instead). The buns are initially prepared using
a meat gelatin filling, but when the bun is steamed, this melts and becomes soup.
- Congee - A porridge, usually made from rice, although sometimes barley, cornmeal, millet or sorghum may be used instead.
- Guotie - Fried dumplings containing ground (minced) meat and/or vegetables.
- Jiaozi - Steamed dumplings containing ground (minced) meat and/or vegetables.
- Shuijiao - Boiled dumplings containing ground (minced) meat and/or vegetables.
- General Tso's chicken - Deep-fried chicken in a sweet-spicy sauce. This dish
is very popular in
Canada and the
US, but is virtually unknown in
- Kung Po chicken - Chicken cooked with Sichuan peppercorns, Shaoxing wine, and nuts
(peanuts or cashew nuts). In Western countries, the dish has been adapted to local tastes
and ingredients (for example, by using bell peppers), and additionally other meats, or seafood,
may be used instead of chicken.
- Mantou - A steamed bun. One of the staple dishes of North China.
- Peking duck - Originally from Beijing
(which used to be known as "Peking"), Peking duck is one of the most famous
Chinese dishes. A duck is glazed with a syrup and roasted, it is then carved in front
of diners, and eaten by wrapping the duck meat, with scallions or cucumber, and plum sauce,
into small steamed pancakes (Mandarin Chinese: pinyin).
In the UK, the duck is generally prepared using
more spices, fried instead of roasted, and known as "cripsy aromatic duck".
- Soy egg - A hard-boiled egg in soy sauce, sugar and water, flavored with herbs and spices.
- Tea egg - A hard-boiled egg, soaked or stewed in tea.
- Zhajiang mian - Thick wehat noodles with ground pork, stired-fried with fermented soybean paste.
- Zongzi - Bamboo leaves filled with glutinous rice and other fillings. Zongzi are boiled or steam before eating.
