Chinese cuisine is popular all over the world and Chinese restaurants can be found across Europe, America and Asia. In the 19th century, the first restaurants patronised by Chinese individuals started to pop up in America and the UK, with the cuisine gradually adapting to a more Western palate. Chinese cuisine in the Western world tends to consist of fried rice and noodle dishes, curries, sweet yet savoury meat dishes and simple marinated or steamed meat and fish dishes. We've got tons of recipes below, including savoury spring rolls, a sweet twist on spring rolls, char sui pork, Chinese salmon and much, much more.

One of the best things about Chinese cuisine is that it tends to be simple, focussing on simple cooking techniques and simple flavours. Most of the dishes on this website are super simple to create and just require a few key store-cupboard ingredients, like those mentioned below.

Keep these ingredients in your store-cupboard and fridge to allow you to easily whip up Chinese dishes in no time at all: wonton wrappers, spring roll wrappers, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, chillies, curry powder, corn flour, chicken stock, rice wine vinegar, rice wine, star anise, cinnamon, ground ginger, sesame oil, red bean curd, five spice powder and spring onions.

Chinese cuisine is super adaptable, too, making it perfect for those who like to shake up their favourite recipes. You can easily add more chilli, less chilli, more garlic, less garlic – anything you like. Make your dishes spicy or not depending on your perferences.
