Tan Cuisine

Tan Cuisine originated in the household of Tan Zongjun, a bureaucrat of the late Qing dynasty (1644 - 1911).Tan Zongjun was born into a famed scholar's family in Guangdong province and worked his way up to a senior offical at a young age. He had been appointed as sheriff in many places and finally got a position in Beijing during his 30s. Since Tan was a cooking enthusiast, he looked to perfect his skills and learn about local dishes wherever he went. After moving to Beijing, he was even more intrigued by food. He made efforts to fuse Beijing cooking with cooking styles of other places, especially of his hometown in Guangdong province. Tan's attempts were successful.
