Chinese FoodsBook - 2004
"When it comes to food, the Chinese have a common saying, 'The masses regard food as their heaven,' which means that food is people's primal want. It should clearly justify the importance that 'eating' holds in Chinese people's lives. Those who promote food culture often use the words of the Chinese philosopher Confucius, 'diet and lovemaking, all primal needs of every human being.' There's probably not another place in this world that has as great a variety of delicious fare as China. The Chinese, who see eating as a fortune and life as an art, not only created various kinds of regional food styles in its own vast lands, but have also spread Chinese food culture far across the sea. Today, in this world where even the farthest corners can seem as close as one's back yard, Chinese food can be enjoyed in each and every metropolitan throughout the world."--Publisher's description.
