China is truly one of the great cuisines of the world, and one of the ancient cuisines that has been around for over 5,000 years. Chinese cuisine is known and especially praised for the attention it pays to every aspect of food, from its palatableness to its texture, and from its fragrance to its colorfulness; until, as in other works of art, proportion and balance are instilled in every dish. Accordingly, the abundance and diversity of cooking techniques is particularly stressed. The concept of harmony makes one of the main building blocks of the Chinese culture.
