The oldest of the cuisines and, with its roots in dishes served to royalty, Shandong is the cuisine of Confucius. Chef Christine marvels at the cuisine and wonders what prevents Westerners from getting to know this style and why they can’t identify it as a separate and distinct Chinese cuisine? Her search culminates in a hands-on experience with her mentor chefs and an impressive guest list of professional foodies enjoying a Shandong banquet.
