Chinese food is one of the most popular foods around the world. Many Chinese people love to eat because they believe good food brings harmony to the family and enhances relationships. For this reason, they go to the market every day to purchase fresh produce, live seafood, and meat. They also look for seasonal fruits and vegetables grown in their region.
Chinese cuisine incorporates many flavors, including sourness, sweetness, and saltiness. Foods from different regions of China have different flavors depending on their climate, agriculture, and culture. Some are spicier than others, while some are saltier than others.
The genre of Chinese food is divided into two distinct sub-genres. The Shanghainese cuisine covers the provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang and is perhaps best known for its Xiaolongbao, a pork bun. While people from these provinces may hold different views on the best way to eat these dishes, they have a common denominator.
A popular Chinese cuisine tradition is family-style meals, which all family members traditionally share. In such a setting, each person must use their chopsticks, with one set dedicated to eating and one to serving. Older guests should use their non-eating end of the chopsticks to serve them.
