Bilingual Menu for Staple Food

Last updated by fadri at 2014-4-20

Traditional Chinese staple food is mainly plant-based food, including rice, wheat and corn, as the mode of production in Central Plains of China is mainly agricultural production. Chinese cooking culture is the axis of the oriental diet cultural circle, which has an effect on a number of countries, such as Japan, Mongolia, North Korea, Republic of Korea, Thailand and Singapore. It also has an indirect influence on Europe, America and Africa. Chinese vegetarian diet, tea culture, cooked wheaten food and herbal cuisine have spread worldwide.

Rice is the major staple food in China especially in south China. But in north China, people like Steamed bread and noddles.
