Chinese cuisine got some bad reputation in the past year or so. After all, a man buying some bats from a flea market started the Covid-19 pandemic.

But Chinese cuisine is more than just bats and similar weird foods. It is quite delicious. Chinese cooking is all about preservation techniques and preserved foods.

New technologies in Chinese cuisine help preserve food and add different flavors to the food. These techniques include air-drying, stewing, smoking, salting, and much more.

Today, traditional foods still influence the Chinese diet. This documentary takes a look at the story behind foods of various kinds in more than 60 locations in mainland China.
