In another style, preparation of seafood can be given more preference than meats and fowl. In the Jiangsu cuisine cooking techniques like braising and stewing are given importance. In Shanghai, Hairy crab is the most preferred food by the people because it is found in water places within the territory. The Beijing Roast Duck is also a famous dish preferred by people outside China. A variety of foods with different flavours and textures are prepared in different regions of the country, based on the method of preparation and cultural differences, the raw materials and ingredients used. Lots of traditional and regional cuisines depend on drying, salting, pickling and fermentation which are the methods of preservation. The Sichuan style originated in the Sichuan Province of south-western China which is famous for its bold tastes, the pungency and spiciness, to be specific. Those flavours resulted from the use of large amounts of garlic and chilli peppers and also the specific flavour of the Sichuan peppercorn. The other important ingredients of the Sichuan cuisine include peanuts, sesame paste and ginger. The Eight Culinary Traditions of China also includes the Anhui cuisine. The cooking styles of Huangshan Mountains region in China were adopted to create this cuisine. The Jiangsu cuisine and Anhui cuisine are pretty much similar.

Lu cuisine is another cooking style with a history that dates back to many years. It is also called as the Shandong Cuisine. As a result of its long history, this cuisine has largely promoted North China, by forming a major segment of the imperial cuisine. This does not make it a popular cuisine in South China which includes Shanghai. A lot of cooking methods and seafood features the Shandong cuisine.
