Beggar's ChickenThis is a wonderful story. A
homeless, starving beggar is wandering along a
road when he catches sight of a chicken. 
Desperate for food, he kills the chicken by
wringing its neck. Lacking a stove, he covers the
chicken in mud, makes a fire and bakes it. (One
version has him plucking the feathers off the
chicken as he eats). At this point an Emperor
passes by with his entourage. Attracted by the
aroma of the baked chicken, he stops and dines
with the beggar, demanding to know how he created
such a delicious meal. "Beggar's chicken" is
subsequently added to the list of dishes served
at the Imperial court.

Chopsticks play an important role in Chinese food
culture. Chopsticks are called "Kuaizi" in
Chinese and were called "Zhu" in ancient times
(see the characters above). Chinese people have
been using kuaizi as one of the main tableware
for more than 3,000 years. Chopsticks can be
classified into five groups based on the
materials used to make them, i.e., wood, metal,
bone, stone and compound chopsticks. Bamboo and
wood chopsticks are the most popular ones used in
Chinese homes. There are a few things to avoid
when using chopsticks. Chinese people usually
don't beat their bowls while eating, since the
behavior used to be practiced by beggars. Also
don't insert chopsticks in a bowl upright because
it is a custom exclusively used in sacrifice.

Sweet and Sour...
The importance given to harmonizing the food is
not just for aesthetic reasons - the ancient
Chinese philosopher Yi Yin theorized that each of
our taste sensations (sour, sweet, bitter and
spicy) was linked to one of the body's five major
organ systems. Therefore, balancing them was a
way to maintain good health.
37
Balance Healthy
  • The Chinese ideal is to eat both types of food
    to keep the body in balance.

Typical medicine cuisine
