CGTN has launched the "Ask China Expats" campaign, encouraging questions about China from all around the world. In this video, Fernando Munoz Bernal, a Colombian vlogger who has lived in China for 23 years, answers a question about Chinese food. Jiangsu Cuisine, also known as Su Cuisine, is one of the eight culinary traditions of Chinese cuisine. It is derived from the native cooking styles of east China's Jiangsu Province. Bernal notes that soft texture is predominant in Jiangsu Cuisine but not to the point of being mushy or falling apart. For example, the meat tastes quite soft but would not separate from the bone when picked up. As Jiangsu is a coastal province in eastern China, fish is a very common ingredient in the local cuisine. Other characteristics include the strict selection of ingredients according to the seasons, with emphasis on the matching color and shape of each dish and using soup to improve flavor.
