Yangzhou fried rice
Yangzhou fried rice is mainly made of rice, ham, eggs, shrimps, peas and so on. Yangzhou fried rice has strict material selection, fine production, exquisite processing, and pays attention to color matching. The authentic Yangzhou fried rice looks like a colorful picture scroll. The crystal-clear grains of rice are inlaid on Golden eggs. Green peas, red ham, green onions and orange carrots are dotted between the rice.
According to legend, when Emperor Suiyangdi visited Jiangdu (Yangzhou), he introduced his favorite fried rice with eggs into Yangzhou. Later, he experienced the gradual innovation of the elite chefs and integrated the characteristics of Huaiyang cuisine and developed into one of the famous staple foods of Huaiyang flavor. Some people also think that Yangzhou fried rice comes from the folk. By the Qing Dynasty, Yi Bingshou began to add shrimps, diced lean meat and ham on the basis of fried rice with onion and fried eggs, and gradually evolved into a variety of fried rice with mixed eggs, which tasted more delicious.
