  1. 1 Squirrel-Shaped Mandarin Fish (松鼠桂鱼) Movie: Eat Drink Man Woman (饮食男女) (1994)


    The opening scene of this award-winning film features the protagonist's mouth-watering cooking skills. The dinner that he prepares for his daughters puts the viewer in foodie heaven. 

    Among the many delicious-looking dishes is the Squirrel-Shaped Mandarin Fish. Crispy on the outside and tender inside, the Squirrel-Shaped Mandarin Fish is the most popular dish in Jiangsu  cuisine. It uses a beautifully sliced fish and first deep-fries it into  the shape of a running squirrel. Then the fish is showered with sweet and sour sauce. The dish requires exceptional knife skills and  perfect control of timing and oil temperature. Even though the dish has gained popularity all over China, only a few chefs can actually make it.
