Tour Price : Counted On Picks Duration : Flexible Languages: English

Shanghai gourmet tour takes you through some of the best local restaurants and teaches how to prepare the best items from Shanghai cuisine.

Shanghai Cuisine – Also known as Benbang cuisine, local Shanghai cuisine emerged during the Ming and Qing periods, which correspond to the Western Modern history period. Shanghai dishes have a distinct vibrant look to them because they are often prepared using wine, baked, fried, steamed and stewed. There are distinct norms and cooking preparations in the local cuisine, as it follows traditional recipes and methods. One of the distinct features of Shanghai cuisine is its aim to preserve the original flavor and freshness of the ingredients used in its recipes, so the dishes are usually crisp and smooth. Traditional flavors include soy sauce and alcohol among many others.

Shanghai Snacks - Shanghai snacks have also seen a long development to their current state. The main boom in snack evolution came when Shanghai became an important trading port during the Qing Dynasty. Since then Shanghai snacks have assimilated different recipes from nearby regions, while maintaining their prominent features such as lightness and freshness, in contrast to spicy or sweet flavor of snacks from other parts of China.
