SHANGHAI, June 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --Resident chef Xie Zhenjie will take us on a journey of his home province, Sichuan to highlight its array of natural ingredients, blending his passion and artistry for this complex yet stunning and flavorful cuisine.

Chef Zhenjie is progressively including more organic vegetables and produce into the Sichuan Court menu to create a fusion of  the characteristic bold and pungent flavors of Sichuan cuisine whilst showcasing the abundance of natural ingredients this region is noted for, as well as demonstrating just a few of the 20 or more distinct techniques that exist for its preparation.

"Sichuan food is infinitely stimulating and energizing and I never tire of creating combinations of new dishes and flavors," said Chef Zhenjie.
