Chinese Culture of Food — Sichuan Cuisine
In the Chinese culture of food, the Sichuan (Chuan) Cuisine has six main tastes: spicy, tongue-numbing, sweet, salty, sour, and bitter; but many dishes are a combination of more than one taste (some dishes even contain more than 20 compounded tastes now).
Using various flavorings is very important in Sichuan Cuisine; these condiments are easy to purchase and use, plus their palatable taste, Sichuan Cuisine now became one of the most popular cooking series in China.
