The Sichuan Food

The Sichuan basin, enclosed by mountains, is the geographical center of China and one of the most fertile regions. The region is far from the sea, many foods are salted, dried, smoked or spicy (pepper) for their conservation, which gives a very characteristic kitchen.


This is the spiciest food in China (even though they say the same thing that Hunan). The aromas are more pronounced garlic, fennel, coriander, star anise, allspice and black pepper.
