Sichuan cuisine is one of the major culinary schools in China and combines the styles from Chengdu and Chongqing. It is known for its deep and rich flavors with each dish having its own unique taste, even among the thousands of dishes developed. Seasonings frequently include chili, pepper, Chinese prickly ash, fermented soy beans, shallots, ginger, garlic, cooking vinegar, and sugar.

These sauces include fish flavors, litchi, spicy, hot, and more.
