Last updated by peggie at 2014/10/21

Chinese dishes feature diversity due to the vast territory and abundant resources. The dishes mainly taste sweet in South, salty in North, sour in East and spicy in West China. The main dishes that are generally accepted in China are eight famous cuisines, including Shandong cuisine, Sichuan cuisine, Cantonese cuisine, Jiangsu cuisine, Fujian cuisine, Zhejiang cuisine, Hunan Cuisine and Anhui Cuisine, based on different climate, geography, history, products and custom of food.
