Chinese food places as much emphasis on texture as on taste, and flavours differ from region to region. There’s a strong tradition of resourcefulness with Chinese ingredients – 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, noodles, and sauces.
