The Chinese food, according to the characteristics of the original is divided into 8 large dishes. But in this time we will announce the food of the southern and northern China which is the most typically seperated in china. And also we will announce the difference between chinese food in Korea and traditional chinese food. There are many differences in diet between the north and the south. People of the north often eat foods made ​​with wheat flour and People of the south eat much rice. The reason is the structure of agricultural production. This reason also made difference at the food structure and diet. Typically in the north, their food is easy to make and taste is salty. But in the south, their food is difficult to make and taste is sweet and light.
First of all , we will introduce the food of the north. The most typical food in the north is dìsānxiān [地三鲜] (삼색 야채볶음).[1] This food are fried with eggplants, potatoes and red peppers. This food’s characteristic is light taste. Second we will introduce Beijing Duck. You also heard about this food. Beijing Duck is baked in fire pot, and then it is mixed with special sauce. These foods became famous thanks to the old history and unique material.[2] Third is the yangjangpi. Literally it is Assorted Seafood and Vegetables with Mustard Sauce. It is possible to eat conveniently and recipe is simple. So chinese people make it at their house.[3]
The most typical food in the south is 红烧肉沔 (hong sha u rou). This food is also called Fried Pork Belly in Soy Sauce because of famous chinese poet So Dong Pa. This food’s characteristic is clean taste inspite of much oil. And also it is old traditional food.[4] Second is Sa Ja Do which has 100 years old tradition. This is a dish that made 40% chopping meat and Biuku of 60%.[5] Third is the Da Zha Xie. It is popular because of its light taste and protein.
The noodles in Korea, which is called xaxa myeon do not eat very much in China actually. And Jjam bbong doesn’t exist in China. Chinese foods in Korea actually have strong sweetness because of Korean’s taste. Also taste is changed because of original material. Typical example is Chinese Buddha Jumps Over the Wall (Chinese: 佛跳墙; pinyin: fó tiào qiáng ). In Korea there is no bamboo, so its special taste is changed.
