Ars coquinaria Sinensis

Ars coquinaria Sinensis e textibus a saeculo fere III a.C.n., ex archaeologia aevorum anteriorum elucidari potest.

Cena virorum Sinarum.

Dissertatione coqui mythistorici Yi Yin, in Veres autumnosque domini Lü anno circiter 239 a.C.n. data, quinque sapores enumerantur, qui sunt 酸 suān amarus, 苦 acer, 甜 tián dulcis, 辣 pungens vel 熱 calidus, 咸 xián salsus. Sequitur enumeratio optimorum ciborum, partim e media valle fluminis Caerulei, partim e regionibus mythicis provenientium.[1]

Artes coquinariae Mandschuriensium et Sinarum differebant,[2] sed in unam cenam interdum recreatam[en] coniungi solebant, ab Yuan Mei deprecatam.[3]


Aevo nostro popinae Sinenses fere ubique per mundum frequentantur. Celebres coqui Sinenses variis linguis de arte sua disseruntur, e.g. Joyce Chen, Caecilia Chang, Sylvia Wu.
