The Characteristics of Hunan Cuisine

Food 2012/08/22 View:998

Xiang dishes: The Xiang school puts much emphasis on the appropriate combination of different foods and delicacy of shapes within dishes, as well as the mixing of ingredients and how flavors are combined. Xiang dishes especially emphasize sour and spicy flavors. As early as the Western Han dynasty, a variety of cooking techniques had been used in cooking Xiang dishes, such as, toasting, mincing, boiling, and salting and now chefs are especially skilled at the technique of simmering when cooking Xiang dishes.
