Chinese Szechuan - 25 July 2020

Chinese Szechuan - 25 July 2020


What makes Szechuan/Sichuan cuisine so special? Hot, humid climates like this huge central-Chinese land-locked province call for food that is both hot and highly spiced because hot foods like red chilli stimulate the palate, making it more sensitive to the other flavours—sweet, sour, bitter, salty, aromatic, and fragrant.

The geography and cultural differences of Szechuan are so vast, this will be no more than an introduction but we’ll do our best with rice, noodles, soy, garlic, ginger, star anise, pork and shrimp.

What to expect: 
Mapu tofu
Marinated black ear salad
Kung Pao chicken
Tu dou si – spicy and sour potatoes
Smashed cucumber salad
Gan Bian – Dry fry cauliflower
Scrambled eggs with tomato
Sichuan Pickled Vegetables
Red Chili Oil
Suan Lo Bo/Pickled Radish
Sichuan Hot Pot
Glutinous Rice Balls/Tang Bu Shuai/Tang Yuan.
