the buzz





What we call “Chinese food” actually describes specialties culled from many regional cuisines. For spicy hot, there’s Sichuan. Subtle sauces characterize Cantonese cooking. Elsewhere, sweet and sour sauces excel. And along the coast, soups and seafood are sublime. Although regional diversity reigns, three ingredients are fundamental to all: ginger, soy sauce and green onions. Chinese cuisine is defined by carefully balanced flavors and time-tested techniques that call for maximal preparation before minimal cooking. Throughout China, ingredients are prepared thoroughly, so food can be eaten with chopsticks and spoons. No fork or knife required.
