What is Yue Cuisine?

Yue Cuisine is originated from Guangdong, the southern part of China. It is also known as the Cantonese Cuisine or Cantonese food. Yue Cuisine is one of the main four types of Chinese cooking. Unlike the other three types of Chinese food, Yue Cuisine tries to retain the origin flavor of the food instead of using tons of spices and sauces in the process of cooking the food.
