Chinese Food Philosophy

What can the world learn from a distinctive food culture that promotes spiritual, mental and physical health?

Chinese culinary traditions reveal much about the social, moral and religious codes that have long governed Chinese society. The content of staple dishes, and the rituals surrounding their preparation, presentation and consumption, are rich with symbolic value and have remained constant over centuries.

In this session, the panellists will explore recent developments in Chinese food culture.  How are young Chinese embracing and adapting distinctive culinary traditions? In highly commercial, urban environments, does tradition sell?  And are characteristics that define China’s food heritage – balance, restraint, health and pleasure – being lost in our increasingly globalised world? If so, what are the consequences for health and wellbeing?
