FEATURED TALK:

Among the great cuisines of the world, such as Indian, French and Italian, the regional cooking of China is one of the most interesting. In a country with diverse weather and natural resources, cooking has been shaped by a vast land that varies widely from region to region in terrain, people and history. Many parts of China are isolated from the rest of the country. The various styles of cooking are as different as the dialects.

What is regional cooking of China? The best way to grasp the classification of China's cuisine is to consider the land as divided into four major culinary regions:

North - Shandong, Hebei, Manchuria and Mongolia

South - Guangdong, Fujian, Chaozhou and Hakka

East - Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Anhui and Taiwan

West - Sichuan, Hunan, Guizhou and Yunnan

Professor Chef Leo Chan will talk about the art and culture of regional Chinese cuisine. It is a celebration reflecting the diversity, unique cooking methods, ingredients, global culinary influences and the migration of people and food to the current Toronto restaurant scene.

It is a journey in search of our lotus roots, our culinary roots sprouting from rich, ancient traditions to the modern Chinese cuisine of a new generation.
