Chinese People Eat Rice Every Day
   2015-09-17 09:35:52    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Liu Ranran

 

Everyone knows Chinese people eat rice, yes? Maybe not!

Most of China¡¯s rice is grown south of the Yangtze River, but this accounts for less than half of China¡¯s total grain output. Hundreds of millions of Chinese people hardly eat rice at all.

According to legend, rice was domesticated by Chinese emperor Shennong. From genetics we know that modern rice was developed about 10,000 years ago.

But in the north the staple crop is wheat, where it¡¯s found in the form of noodles, steamed buns, dumplings and pancakes. Dishes cooked in the north include fish, pork, beef, and potatoes. But don¡¯t wait for the rice, or you could be waiting forever.
