Sichuan (also spelled Szechuan) is a province in the Southwest of China typically known for its spicy food and the Yangtze River that runs through it. The food is often hot, sour, sweet, salty and spicy often containing a regional ingredient, Szechuan pepper. The specialty peppercorn is not a traditional pepper but it can impart a strong, tongue numbing and slightly bitter taste. Other common spices in Szechuan cuisine include chilies, garlic, ginger, green onion. Suggest going out for Sichuan cuisine, and many people immediately envision platters of hot, spicy food – the kind that has you gulping down copious amounts of water all evening in an attempt to soothe your burning taste buds. People are often surprised to discover that at least of one-third of the recipes that make up Sichuan cuisine are not spicy at all. That is not to say that Sichuan’s reputation for producing “mouth burners” is undeserved.
