There’s not just one type of Chinese food. This is Eat China, where we dissect Chinese cuisine region by region to understand the sheer variety of flavors and techniques that have evolved over the centuries. Join our host Clarissa as she uncovers China’s signature dishes, from east to west, north to south.
Sichuan is the land of spice, and enjoying food from the western region of China means strong flavors of heat, numbing peppercorns, and savory century eggs. Plus, a pickle expert shows us why pickles are a permanent part of western Chinese diets.
