As one of the most important part of Chinese culture, Chinese cuisine has been
revered and known throughout China’s history.

You may have been tantalized by Chinese cuisine from magazines, or enjoyed
the experience of going to a Chinese restaurant in your own country.

However, what you may not realize is that authentic Chinese food is vastly different from
what you have been used to. Most Chinese food that you are familiar with is heavily battered
and fried. Vegetables are more or less treated as condiments rather than the basis for some dishes.
Chinese food that you order for take-out does not fully realize the many regional differences found
throughout China.
