Abstract: Food in China is often misconstrued as homogeneous, lacking in diversity. However, a closer look can expose an entire realm of unique cuisines. These foods represent the different peoples and cultures that reside in the vast expanse of land known as Greater China. This paper will look at five distinct cuisines: Shandong, Jiangsu, Szechuan, Cantonese, and Taiwanese cuisine. Through exploring the similarities and differences of cuisine in these areas, culture emerges along with a variety in food that the Western world would not expect.
