Lee Lee’s Fun Fact of the Week

Although there are many different styles and methods of cooking in Chinese cuisine, culinary experts have identified eight styles as the best and most common!

Here are the eight Cuisines of China:

Sichuan, Hunan, Anhui, Fujian, Guangdong, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, and Shandong.

  • Fujian, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, and Guangdong (Cantonese) are generally sweeter dishes and are made with fresh seafood.
  • Shandong cuisines are also seafood dishes, however they’re salty instead of sweet.
  • If you’re looking for something spicy, Hunan and Sichuan cuisines are perfect for you!
  • Anhui and Jiangsu cuisines are both influenced by ingredients that grow in the wild. Anhui cuisine is influenced by native cooking styles of the Huangshan Mountains and the Jiangsu cuisine is derived from the native cooking ways of the Jiangsu province.

The Best of 2016 Charleston Food & Wine – Paste Magazine

“Speaking of wines, there were plenty of wine pairings with multi-course dinners (including a standout Sparkling + Spice Dinner collaboration between Lee Lee’s Hot Kitchen and Chef Katie Button), but for the most part, the high heels and suit and tie were traded more often for boots and jeans. More casual offerings and some excursions outside the city to experience the bounty of the region peppered the programming and provided attendees with a little rowdy fun and a lot of facetime with chefs, pitmasters and more.

Here are some of the highlights.”

Thanks Paste, we had a great time collaborating with Katie and her enthusiastic crew from Asheville.
