Taking Sichuan cuisine to the world

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:35 pm on 22 August 2017

China is almost 10 million square metres, so it goes without saying that the cuisine is wide ranging across the different regions.

Jenny Gao was born in Chengdu, the capital of the Sichuan province of China - where the flavours are quite different from what you would find at a Chinese restaurant here.

She is a food writer and restaurateur and is visiting New Zealand after working with WBC restaurant in Wellington for its Wellington on a Plate Sichuan Soul Food Feast.
