Chinese food places as much emphasis on texture as on taste. Flavours differ from region to region, but there’s a strong tradition of resourcefulness with Chinese ingredients – traditional meat dishes include feet and tongue, and artisanal techniques like fermenting, drying and pickling are commonly used to preserve food. Many Chinese dishes can be made just from store-cupboard ingredients: pickles, dried mushrooms, dried sausage, dry rice and noodles, and sauces.

Order the same Asian ingredients online that you would find in a Chinese supermarket or Asian supermarket: Lao Gan Ma (LGM), Lee Kum Kee (LKK), and many more. For ideas for how to use the authentic Chinese ingredients see our free Chinese recipes.
