China is a large country with a lot of people spread out all over it. The different regions each developed a style of cooking based on what was available for ingredients, weather and the preferences of the people. Some of the most well known types of Chinese food are identified by the province or city. A well known example of this is Guangdong (Cantonese) food. Hong Kong food is a specialized variant of the Guangdong style of Chinese food. Hong Kong cuisine uses the same cooking techniques and ingredients but some dishes are slightly more elaborate or stylized in the preparation and presentation.
