Cantonese restaurants

Updated:2008-06-03 15:22 | Source:

Probably the best known and certainly the most widely available of Chinese cuisines, the Cantonese style of cooking commands an admiration that spans the world. In ancient dynasties, emperors would travel to the south of China to taste Cantonese specialities, or frequently have their favourite Cantonese chef summoned to the imperial kitchen.

The secret of the light, delicate tastes of the myriad of Cantonese dishes is deeply embedded in the region's climatic and geographical location, which produces an abundance of varied ingredients. Like the French, who attach great importance to food, the Cantonese pride themselves on being gourmands who truly live up to the motto of "live to eat".

To prepare a classic Cantonese meal, fresh ingredients are not only a "must" but the foremost consideration. Hong Kong housewives often visit the market twice a day to find the freshest choice of fish, meat and vegetables. Using a careful mix of cooking oil and the freshest ingredients, the Cantonese style of cooking has the knack of creating dishes that look as though they have just been plucked from the ground, or taken straight out of the sea. There's no great mystery to achieving this, just great care with the cooking temperature and mastering the art of steaming or stir-frying.

Of the many Cantonese dishes, seafood remains the most popular, followed by poultry (mainly chicken), pork and vegetables. Vegetarians and those who are strongly influenced by Buddhist and Taoist philosophies have a wide range of vegetables to choose from, which adequately provides them with a varied meatless diet.
