Cantonese cuisine in Leamington Spa
Canton has a long history as a trading port and many imported ingredients have become integral to the unique and internationally exciting character of Cantonese cuisine.
For Cantonese chefs the flavours of a finished dish should be well balanced. A wide variety of meats, poultry, fish, seafood and vegetables at the peak of their freshness and quality are prepared, with spices being used sparingly to avoid overwhelming the flavours of the primary ingredients.
Steaming and stir-frying are the most favoured cooking methods due to their rapidity and ability to preserve freshness and flavour but other techniques deployed include shallow frying, double boiling, braising, and deep frying.
