Hebei, the inner ring of Beijing and Tianjin, far away from the Bohai Sea, under the Taihang Mountains, the northern style.
This is the generous and tragic land of Yan and Zhao, is the capital since the Ming and Qing dynasties, geographical positioning and cultural positioning, are quite accurate, however, there is also let people not quite clear, that is, Hebei cuisine.
What kind of cuisine is Hebei cuisine, or Ji cuisine? It seems to be not very famous?
First of all, Hebei cuisine is not among the eight major cuisines, naturally not much attention; secondly, Hebei cuisine so that people are known for less famous dishes, unlike Lu cuisine, even if they have not eaten, we also know a nine turn large intestine, scallion explosion sea cucumber.
In terms of genre, Hebei cuisine is divided into three major schools.
The northern Beijing style cuisine represented by Zhangjiakou and Chengde .
The Beijing East flavor dishes represented by Tangshan and Qinhuangdao.
Southern Beijing style dishes represented by Baoding, Shijiazhuang, Xingtai, Hengshui, Handan, etc.
Representative famous dishes, mainly the governor tofu, pot wrapped elbow, golden lion fish, white jade chicken breast, Li Hongzhang braised vegetables and so on, to be honest, if out of Hebei, few people may know these dishes, so that Hebei cuisine is very low-key.
However, the snacks of Hebei, or very rich, a variety of flavor snacks gathered, relatively speaking, than the traditional famous dishes of Hebei, more famous.
The following inventory of the three famous snacks in Hebei, see how many you have eaten?
1、Baoding donkey meat hot pot
When you go to Hebei, you can't help but try the donkey meat hotpot, after all, it's so famous that it has almost become synonymous with Hebei cuisine.
As the saying goes, dragon meat from the sky and donkey meat from the ground.
Eating donkeys, Hebei people are serious, exaggerating a bit, no donkey can live out of Hebei.
In Hebei, donkey meat fire, mainly divided into two major factions, one is Baoding donkey meat fire, one is the Hefei donkey meat fire, Guo Degang's comedy said, Baoding has a donkey fire hotel, I wonder if there is in reality?
2、Hebu donkey meat hot pot
Hefei Donkey Fire refers specifically to the donkey meat fire in Hefei, a county-level city that is part of Cangzhou City, where the art of donkey fire is listed as a provincial intangible cultural heritage in Hebei Province.
What is the difference between Hefei Donkey Fire and Baoding Donkey Fire?
First of all, the history of Hema donkey fire should be earlier than Baoding donkey fire, which is the real "hometown of donkey fire".
Furthermore, the donkey meat of Hefei Donkey Fire is made in sauce, while the donkey meat of Baoding Donkey Fire is brined, Hefei uses Taihang donkeys, Baoding uses Bohai donkeys, and the donkey production methods and donkey breeds are different.
Also, Hefei donkey fire is rectangular and Baoding donkey fire is round, from the appearance, they are different again. Of course, this is the traditional standard of donkey fire making, and it is hard to say whether the donkey fires that are now popular across the country are still made this way.
3、Shanghe Pork Cake
Donkey fire is good, but you can't always eat it, so there is a delicious meat cake in Hebei that can replace people's taste, and it is Xianghe meat cake.
Xianghe meat cake is popular in Hebei and Beijing, and in Beijing, it is also a famous cuisine, which can be said to have originated in Hebei and developed in Beijing, with a heritage of two hundred years.
Xianghe is a county under Langfang in Hebei Province, west of Beijing Tongzhou, so Xianghe meat cake, also known as Jingdong meat cake.
Where did this pie come from?
Some people say that it may originate from the Turkic cake more than a thousand years ago, however, it is generally believed that the Xianghe meat cake originated in the Ming and Qing dynasties, mainly during the Qianlong period of the Qing dynasty, speaking of which, we should all guess, and related to the Qianlong emperor, it is said that the Qianlong emperor passed by this place, ate this meat cake, greatly appreciated, from then on the fame of Xianghe meat cake spread.
