Hunan cuisine, also known as Xiang cuisine, is one of the Eight Great Traditions of Chinese cuisine and is well known for its spicy flavors, fresh aroma, and deep colors. It consists of the cuisines of the Xiang River region, Dongting Lake, and western Hunan Province in China. Hunan cuisine is known for being gan la (干辣; "dry and spicy") or purely hot, as opposed to Sichuan cuisine's ma la (麻辣; "spicy and numbing"), to which it is often compared.



Yue Yuan Restaurant, the Chinese restaurant at Crowne Plaza Paragon Xiamen, recently invited the famous Chinese Hunan master chef Xiaochun Zhang to guest cook at Yue Yuan Restaurant until December 13th. Xiang cuisine will be available at the restaurant until February 2018.


Hunan cuisine master, Xiaochun
Zhang , has 50 years of experience as a chef and was honored with the “Golden Chef” award by the China Cuisine Association in 2006, the “Hunan Cuisine Classic Production Master” title at the closing ceremony of the sixth China Hunan Cuisine and Culture Festival in 2011, and “Developer of the third generation of the dish ‘steamed fish head with fresh chili and cured chili’” by the Hunan Cuisine lndustry Association in 2014.
