As an old saying goes, hunger breeds discontentment. The Chinese culture has a long history with food. Materials from both home and abroad have been used and combined together since Zhou Dynasty. During Ming Dynasty, peppers have been imported to China from America and are widely used in Sichuan and Hunan Cuisine. Sichuan cuisine began in west China, featuring pungent, spicy, and appetizing. Hunan cuisine started in middle China, featuring sour and hot as well as delicious and fragrant. Exquisite colors and flavors can be found in both two cuisines. By using various materials and experiencing various tastes, they both win a high reputation. Food carries culture. Sichuan and Hunan cuisine is always playing important roles in Chinese food and helped spread the Chinese culture throughout the world.
