Huaiyang cuisine festival held at university to promote food culture
A Huaiyang cuisine festival was held at the East China Normal University on Wednesday to promote Jiangnan (south of the lower reaches of the Yangtze River) food culture.
A variety of typical Huaiyang dishes like dazhu gansi, tofu in chicken broth, shizitou (stewed meatballs) and Yangzhou fried rice were served.
Huaiyang cuisine originated in the lower reaches of the Yangtze and Huaihe rivers around the cities of Huai'an, Yangzhou and Zhenjiang in Jiangsu Province.
It is one of four world-renowned Chinese cuisines and is light, elegant, delicate and famously non-greasy, requiring meticulous slicing and carving skills.
