Sichuan Dinner (1)
Time & Location
About The Event
Sichuan has been known as the land of plenty since ancient times in China When the hot pepper was introduced into China from South America around the end of the 17th century. Once it came to Sichuan, it became a favored food flavoring. Sichuan has high humidity and many rainy or overcast days. Hot pepper helps reduce internal dampness, so hot pepper was used frequently in dishes, and hot dishes became the norm in Sichuan cuisine.
But Sichuan food is really about a variety of flavors: spicy, flowery (Sichuan peppercorns), salty, sour, sweet, bitter, smoky, etc. Frequently all of those flavors are combined in one dish. The result is a cuisine with incredible depth and complexity of flavor.
