Speaking of the difference between Chinese food and Western food, in addition to the different ingredients and different crafts, the difference is even more obvious in the use of many seasonings. For example, the most important kind of seasoning, salt, salt used in western food gives people the first impression that it is too dazzling, red, black, green, etc. which makes us many Chinese diners feel amazing. Why do you want to make so many colors and types of salt for cooking? Why do Chinese food use a kind of salt, and the salt of western food is full of color? The technology is not enough, the raw materials come together.
Some people will say that the salt used in Western food, the taste of each salt is different, and the different salts contain different nutrients, such as the rose salt sold in the supermarket, because of the nutrition, the price is very high. The so-called rose salt, we have existed since ancient times, the so-called rose salt, used in ancient China to feed horses or breed, people basically do not eat, there is a documentary in the past there is an introduction, this salt master In the Kangba Tibetan area, there was a tea-horse road at the earliest. This salt was not eaten by the locals. Even if it was eaten, it was purified. The ancients believed that salt was not good and salt was not good. To put it bluntly, the salt itself eats the taste, the nutrient is sodium chloride, and just want to increase nutrition from the salt, it is not necessary.
In fact, the salt used in Western food, so many varieties, so beautiful colors, how much nutrients are contained inside, is really not the main reason. What is the main reason? In fact, if you talk about the food itself, you can understand it in this way. The salt for Chinese food is just for taste, while the Western food is for good looks. That's it. The craft list of Chinese food is much more refined than the western food. It doesn't need to use those strange salt to attract attention. Chinese food is fried, boiled and steamed. Most of the time it is a pot or a plate. There are a lot of soup inside. The salt that looks good will be added in the end. Western food, roasted and fried more, salt will not be too much, can be used for decoration, it is so simple.
