Chengde’s culinary history dates back to the Qing Dynasty when the cooking culture of both royal and folk converged after the construction of the Mountain Resort. While it has evolved over time, incorporating elements of other diets and tastes, local dishes are representative of court dishes in the north of the Great Wall. Chengde cuisine also has Manchu influence given their population in the area. Dishes such as Red Bean Gruel, Youmian (made of oat flour), and hot pot with Chinese Sauerkraut are popular in this city.

In Chengde dining, the color of the food, its smell and taste are all taken into account – the end result of any frying, sauteing, braising must be a superb dish. Some famous local dishes are Five Spiced Venison, Game Hot Pot and Chilled Hare of Pingquan. Flavored snacks include crisp cake, eight-treasure rice pudding, bean-starch jelly, haw sheets, nansha cake, and Shaomai (steamed dumpling with the dough gathered at the top), all of which are prepared with a special local twist.
