Northern Chinese Cuisine


Northern Chinese cuisine refers to the cooking in the areas north of the Yangzi River, such as Hebei (which surrounds Beijing, Capitol of China), Henan, Shandong, Zhanxi and Liaoning. Since the climate is hot and dry during summers and freezing cold during winters in this part of China, northern Chinese people opt for more solid, nourishing beef, lamb and duck meat. Garlic, leeks and scallions are heavily used in northern Chinese cooking. Instead of rice, wheat is the main grain in northern China. Noodles and pancakes made from wheat flour constitute the important portion of many meals. Dumplings are a very popular Chinese food in this area.
