Deepest inherently philosophical doctrines of ancient China, has always impressed us with their depth and wisdom sayings. Every word and thought, though filled with invaluable drops of meaning that are the determining factor in the formation of modern socio-political behavior of the Chinese people. China is not just a country with its own laws and concepts, is a place of beauty, aesthetics and a truly traditional symbolism. Such philosophies like Taoism (currently the religion with stately design) and Confucianism simply could not go away completely, they are modernized, changed and subsequently have survived, thus having a significant impact on the life of China’s population. So it is with cuisine, Chinese cuisine is very diverse and aesthetically pleasing, appearance and colour of food in China attach great importance.
Cuisine of China can not be called a centralized and uniform for all provinces, each province of China has its own feature, which affects the flavors of the dishes. This way you can select multiple regions, where you can enjoy the traditional flavours of Chinese cuisine — Shandong, Sichuan, Canton (Guangdong) and Fujian. By the way if you trace menu, all regions, all the same, you will observe the heterogeneity of regional cuisine, so cuisine of China can be called a collective, each province a little.
The most distinctive Chinese cuisine is the product. In the Chinese food consume many of the things that runs, crawls and swims, not to be an exception, and Cauchy, dogs, snakes, sharks, mushrooms and bamboo. This diversity of raw materials for Chinese dishes makes the kitchen one of the most exotic, it’s not every day you eat snakes, sharks and cats? The main dish of Chinese cuisine, like Japanese, is rice. Rice in China serves an amazing number of dishes, it can cook both separately and season numerous sauces and serve with rice a wide range of additives in the form of seafood, vegetables, eggs and meat. We should not forget about the sauces, which in Chinese cuisine is of great importance. Generally Asian cuisine is famous for its sauces, which give the dish a specific flavor.
As far as the aesthetics and rules of Chinese cuisine, and they are interesting and new. Sticks which is eaten not only in Japan but also in China, also have their symbolic importance, however, is somewhat different from Japanese. In China chopsticks symbolize the beak of a crane, and it is for the convenience of guests, the food must be chopped into small pieces, to not have to exert extra effort at the feast. It is also worth noting that the table in China is served in a special way. All the dishes are offered to the guest, must combine several components, without which is impossible to manage. Sour, sweet, salty, pungent, aromatic, bitter, sweet and gold must be present on the dining table. Such a collective image most likely represents the diversity and richness.
Generally, Chinese cuisine is very similar to Japanese, however, it would be wrong to say that they are completely identical. In China you can find the greatest variety of exotic dishes prepared with unknown foods. To see the greatest variety of sauces, and just enjoy the unusual and specific taste.
