Guangxi[edit]

How come Guangxi cuisine isn't here? Badagnani 20:03, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

The move and change[edit]

I moved the title from Template:Cuisine of China to Template:Chinese cuisine to make consistent with the article of Chinese cuisine. I also changed the template's layout and colors along with the addition of missing entries, such as cooking methods, historical documents, food types, etc. I think this new change definitely reduces the unnecessary space and length that the previous version has. If you want to fix some grammatical errors or tweak to enhance the template, feel free to do so.--Caspian blue 19:38, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Works for me. --Jeremy (blah blahI did it!) 19:41, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Citations[edit]

Hello all, I just wanted to mention that this is a navigation template. Navigation templates provide a single formatted box that links together related articles but do not provide information about the subject; as such they do not need to be cited. If this were an information box, the information inside of it would need to be cited following the established rules for sources.

Please do not add citations to this template.

Image[edit]

The current image, File:ChineseDishLogo.png is unsatisfying and biased because it only includes traditional characters, writing 中國菜 instead of 中国菜. If we want to be neutral, then maybe we should write some alternative like 中餐 which is same in both versions, or stick to the language version of the area that is more populous, unquestionably authentic, and most recognizable. Shrigley (talk) 00:58, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Personally, I would like to strike the characters entirely, and from all at Category:Cuisine templates by country. An image alone is enough, and sometimes too much, as it can be controversial like in the case of Template:American cuisine, where it was removed.
Although I respect the efforts of the editor who added the text on top of the images, it is redundant, and sort of appears like a food magazine cover. Other examples are Template:Argentine cuisine and Template:British cuisine. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 01:12, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

When the text is unsatisfying and biased, we should remove the picture. It would have been nice when we had a picture of the dish without the text, but I couldn't find one. Although I acknowledge that "Chinese cuisine", just like "American cuisine" does not exist, I would suggest to use another picture. The one offered here seems neutral enough to me, although it just represents one kitchen out of a few hundred, I guess. The Banner talk 09:32, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Sure. That's not a bad picture. It could be from anywhere, so it's not xxx-centric. Plus there's the dragon fruit -- very Chinese. Anna Frodesiak (talk) 09:48, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
yes, we should just remove the image entirely per prior discussions about similar templates. Frietjes (talk) 22:25, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
Getting rid of all the images would solve everything. Picking one image is like asking which fruit represents fruit. Try a Duck confit image at the French template and the Cassoulet people will freak. Blood pressure will rise (but that would probably be from the rich diet). So, sure. How about no image here for starters? Anna Frodesiak (talk) 23:45, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

Australian Chinese food[edit]

There needs to be a page on this and it should be added to the template/category. I might get around to it eventually but if someone else did it first, that would be super. Sir Langan (talk) 04:33, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
