A Bite of China: A Must-see if You Love Chinese Food and Culture

A Bite of China (舌尖上的中国 Shéjiān shàng de Zhōngguó) is currently one of the best Chinese cuisine documentaries. It effortlessly blends the local customs and cooking styles as it introduces different dishes from various locations, and integrates this into the transformative background that China has had for the past three decades.

Made in 2012, A Bite of China is a TV series that documents Chinese cuisine, including historical cooking methods and various dishes originating in China. After the first broadcast, which was on May 14th, 2012, the show became quite popular and China Central Television’s ratings rose. Throughout seven episodes, the show gave viewers an idea of the history behind an array of diverse foods that hailed from over 60 different places in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and mainland China. A Bite of China has been an excellent way for those who are not familiar with Chinese cuisine to gain a basic understanding of the various foods and the culture associated with them. The project involved several notable chefs, who served as consultants to ensure that the information was being presented accurately.
