Huangshan Dining

The cuisine of Huangshan is a sub-branch of Anhui Cuisine (Hui Cuisine), which is one of the Eight Culinary Traditions of China. It's best known for its special delicacies.

Braising and stewing are common techniques used in Anhui Cuisine, and wild herbs both land and sea are widely used in cooking.

The cooks are very particular about ingredients and fire control, putting in thick starchy sauce and much oil in order to keep the natural juice and taste of the materials. A large amount of ingredients used in the dishes come from Huangshan Mountain.
