One of the best reasons to visit Beijing is the food culture. China has an incredible wealth of culinary traditions and you should be able to sample each of the 8 main schools of cookery in the capital; as well as a host of sub-schools and localized variations of dishes. Until recently there was little choice available to Chinese consumers regarding the product used in food preparation. Today as the Chinese middle-class becomes increasingly sophisticated there is a rising demand for organic foodstuffs.
Organic fruit and vegetables uses no pesticides or herbicides during the growing phase or after it is been harvested. Organic meat, eggs and dairy is free of additives of any description and animals are raised naturally.
