Beijing cuisine originated in the Liao and Jin Dynasties, took shape in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, developed in more modern times, and now thrives in the contemporary era. Characterized by cooking techniques such as stir frying, baking and simmering, it is a rich and heavy cuisine, reliant on soy sauce for flavor, and has a crisp taste. Careful selection of materials is paramount, as is meticulous cutting and shaping, as well as preparation and cooking rules. With great cultural significance, this style of cooking combines many flavors, and has very distinct Beijing characteristics.
