CHINA - Sichuan (West)

Szechuan, or Sichuan, is situated in the western interior of China and is famous for its spicy and robust cuisine. The warm, humid climate and rugged landscape made way to sophisticated food-preservation techniques, such as salting, drying and smoking and explosive flavor combinations of hot, sour, sweet and spicy. Peppercorn, dried and pickled chili, nuts are widely used in Sichuan.
