Sichuan Province, located in south western China has been known as the land of plenty since ancient times. Colloquially it is known as the “heavenly country” due to its abundance of food and natural resources. As a unique style of food, Sichuan cuisine was already famous more than 800 years ago during the Southern Song Dynasty. Traditionally popular for sweet and sour delicacies, Sichuan cuisine gained recognition over the recent 200 years through the use of hot Szechwan chilli peppers and is known to all for its hot and pungent dishes.Cantonese cuisine comes from Guangdong Province in southern China. With its mild, subtropical climate grows an abundance of foods all year, including rice, fruit and vegetables. It is characterized by the use of very mild spices as compared to hot Sichuan cuisine. It’s prominence outside China is due to the great numbers of early emigrants from Guangdong province.
