Regional cuisines


Recommended Posts

Chinese cuisines are mainly divided into four regions:

Cantonese, Shanghaiese, Beijing and Sichuanese.

There are also 2nd-tier regional cuisines which I have heard/tried that include:

Hangzhou, Chaozhou, Hainan, Taiwan, Fujian, Hunan, Hakka, Shandong, Yunnan, Northeast and Xinjiang.

But what about other regions?

Do provinces like Anhui or Shanxi have their own regional cuisines? What dishes are they famous for?

Dear lan_lee

Nowadays Chinese cuisines are mainly divided into eight regions (or schools)

鲁(lu e.g. shandong山东)、川(chuan e.g.sichuan四川)、粤(yue e.g.Canton广东)、闽(min e.g. 闽南)、苏(su e.g.suzhou苏州) 、浙(zhe e.g. zhengjiang浙江)、湘(xiang e.g.湖南和湖北)、徽(hui e.g.安徽)

For Anhui's cuisines please check: http://www.chaozhou.gd.cn/home/mstd/ms_bdcx_hc.htm
