The Chinese have been cooking for over 3,000 years, and one of the biggest things that make them unique from their Western counterparts is their use of what is called “cooking tricks.” Although they may not be the most refined culinary artists, their cooking tricks are a significant aspect of their culture and identity. It includes Chinese desserts.

Varieties Of Recipes

Cooking with the stars and moon is one of the most common cooking tricks employed by the Chinese. You can spot Chinese recipes and ingredients in everything from dessert to sauces, and this is especially true when you consider that the Chinese often put Chinese ingredients with flowers or other floral scents.

Spicy soups are another common sight. The traditional Chinese medicine books that I found online showed that the ancient Chinese used spices to enhance healing.

Crayfish is a very popular item in Chinese desserts, and recipes often include fried crayfish and other seafood items. Crayfish are also used in desserts such as pixie cakes.

First of all, you need to have an eye for seasonal changes, which is why some of the recipes may seem to change throughout the holiday season. For example, on certain Chinese holidays such as the spring equinox, it is traditional to cook with onions and garlic.

Be sure to eat the leftover of the dish before it spoils and go through the whole process all over again. Some people may think that the notion of spending hours of their time in the kitchen makes them lazy, but I beg to differ.

Secondly, be sure to put the ingredients together for stir fry vegetables, beans, and chicken before you begin the actual cooking. If you get this right, you will have a great finished product that will wow your guests and let them keep coming back for more.

Bottom Line

Finally, there is a final tip that may seem very obvious, but it is worth mentioning anyway. Before starting any recipe, read the ingredients first. It may sound silly, but if you don’t understand what you are putting into your mouth, you could get seriously sick.
