The typical flavors of Chinese food are achieved by using ginger, soy sauce and rice wine. There are four major regions which reflect the regional cuisine. Firstly there is the Cantonese cuisine of the southern Guangdong province including Hong Kong. Sichuan cooking reflects the western provinces while Huaiyang is originated in the east such as the regions of Shanghai. Finally there is the northern food which reflects the culinary skills of chefs throughout the regions of Beijing. These cuisines are not only different by the way of preparation but also ingredients used. Due to its immense size, China’s basic ingredients such as Ginger vary widely based on the area they were harvested. Due to it’s geographical location Guangdong had the advantage of trading with Hong Kong which has had a spin off effect on it’s cuisine which is generally considered as the fashion leader in Chinese cuisine. Dim Sum, served traditionally in small bamboo baskets is one of the proofs of Chinese Chefs leading the way of excelling Chinese food.  Overseas Chefs come from Malaysia and many dishes are in a Malaysian style that makes your food just a little better to the taste buds.
