Cantonese cuisine is considered to be the finest of China's regional cuisines with an emphasis on maintaining the natural flavors of the food. Cantonese cuisine, from the Canton province next to Hong Kong, is one of the Eight Culinary Traditions of Chinese cuisine.

A Cantonese chef would consider it a culinary sin to create a dish that was overcooked or too heavily seasoned.  For many traditional Cantonese chefs, the flavors of a finished dish should be well-balanced and not greasy. Apart from that, spices should be used in moderation; to avoid overwhelming the flavors of the primary ingredients, which these ingredients should be at the peak of its freshness and quality. Many cooking methods are used, where steam and stir fry are deemed the most popular due to its convenience and rapidity. Other techniques include shallow frying, double steaming, braising, just to name a few.
