Nǐ hǎo folks! We are back with our next cuisine i.e. Chinese. Yes. We all are Chinese food lovers. And why not! The flavor, the aroma, the taste, the texture, the cuisine has got it all. But when it comes to keeping Chinese cuisine on your wedding menu, then there’s a lot more to know about it than just Noodles and Manchurian. Let us at WedAbout help you let know everything you need to about the Chinese Cuisine with the help of our experts Chef Sandeep Munjal (Director, Vedatya Institute) and Chef Gurpreet Singh Kochar (Assistant Professsor, Vedatya Institute).
Let’s admit people that Chinese food is one of the most desired foods of the people of all ages. Therefore this loved-by-all cuisine can be considered to be an ideal choice to be put on your wedding menu.
Our expert advice says “Proper control of temperature and cooking time is the key to success or failure. Therefore, special ranges with control knobs are required. Chinese cooking calls for maximum preparations of raw ingredients and minimum cooking time. Chinese cooking requires skillful cooks who are diligent with strong sense of artistry.”
The basic of Chinese Cuisine is fresh vegetables and ingredients (look out those getting married in summers!). There are some special steamers and woks needed too which demand some investment. However according to our experts Chef Sandeep and Chef Gurpreet “The ingredients commonly used in the cuisine are easily available and are nominally priced which does not affect the overall budget at all. The best part is that Chinese cooking experts/cooks can be sourced easily and at competitive wages.” (Take a sigh of relief!)
Don’t we all love these little stuffed bundles so much! Dumplings consist of minced meat and chopped vegetables wrapped into a thin piece of dough skin. Popular Indian fillings are chicken, mutton and chopped veggies. They can be cooked by boiling, steaming, or frying and are served hot with spicy dips.
The bright orange-red colored saucy dish is sweet as well as sour in taste giving it an inch of tanginess. At the very beginning there was only sweet and sour pork, but to meet the Indians’ immense love for chicken, the same was introduced. Apart from chicken, mutton, lamb, pork and pork ribs can also be used.
As our experts say “Chinese cooking style is influenced by five Chinese regions-namely Cantonese, Shantung, Szechwan, Hunan and Fukein. All the cooking styles emphasize on palatability, texture, fragrance and color which provide balance and harmony to each dish.”
Go ahead y’all getting married this wedding season and perk up your guests with a couple of Chinese dishes as a part of your D-day menu.
