Chinese Food, one of the greatest methods of cooking, is a term for styles of food originating in the regions of China, many of which have become extremely popular all over the world — from Asia to the Americas, Australia, Western Europe and Southern Africa. Where there are historical immigrant Chinese populations, the style of food has evolved – for example, American Chinese cuisine and Indian Chinese cuisine are prominent examples of Chinese cuisine that has been adapted to suit local palates. In recent years, connoisseurs of Chinese have also sprouted in Eastern Europe and South Asia. The culinary Michelin Guide has also taken an interest in Chinese cuisine, establishing Hong Kong and Macao versions of its publication.

Traditional Chinese cuisine is also based on opposites, whereby hot balances cold, pickled balances fresh and spicy balances mild.Chinese food need never be a once-a-week-restaurant treat again! Free and mouth watering Chinese recipes, easy to follow and cook.

Confucius once said: “Eating is the utmost important part of life.” A delightful and delicious meal creates happiness, harmony, mental and physical well-being.Most Chinese dishes are cooked with meat and vegetables together, so the foods contain lower calories and are less rich than Western style food. Vegetables stay bright and crisp by cooking them for a short time over high heat, either in their own juice or in a small amount of water. This method retains most of the vitamins and minerals.

Chinese cuisine–when done right–is pleasing, subtle, delicate, satisfying, and a great treat to the taste buds. However, most Chinese restaurants in the United States have pretty much butchered Chinese food and turned one of the greatest cuisines in the world into something vaguely recognizable–gooey, starchy, sticky, greasy, and downright unappetizing–one that is certain to leave a bad taste in the mouth of many diners
