When you ask the majority Westerners who say they love Chinese food, they very often are referring to Cantonese food. In Singapore, like many places around the world, Chinese food, coming from Guangdong province is widely celebrated. Cantonese dishes should be well balanced and non greasy, also the use of spices should not overcome the main flavours and the principle ingredient. Furthermore Cantonese foods and cuisine must be made only from the freshest of ingredients. Herbs are little used in Cantonese recipes, which is the opposite of the liberal use in other Asian cuisines, like Sichuan, Thai and Vietnamese cuisines. The main ingredients used in Cantonese cooking for enhancing flavour are the likes of, Soy Sauce, Rice Wine, Sesame Oil, Spring Onions and in some recipes Garlic is very dominant., especially in dishes using offal. Other spices are used in small amounts so as not to overpower the dishes, such as Chilies, 5 - Spice powder, Star Anise and ground Black Pepper amongst others.
