Shandong cuisine

chinese banquetShandong cuisine has great influence on Beijing cuisine. You may find many Shandong restaurants in Beijing. Its popularity is based on the wide variety of materials used. Moreover, it has a pure, strong and mellow taste rather than a mixed taste. The world-famous Peking duck has its origin in Shandong province, as can be seen in the way of serving the duck with rolled bannock together with green Chinese onion.

600 hundreds ago, People from Shandong moved to Beijing in a large quantity in search for better opportunities. Since then Beijing cuisine began to absorb the cooking techniques of Shandong cuisine: quick ĘC frying, stir- frying, braising, and deep ĘC fat frying. With the development of history, generations of effort and the transformation of social form, Beijing cuisine developed into its own distinguishing features.
