他们在食物中使用姜、大蒜、胡椒、葱、辣椒、薄荷等。他们用酱油和醋来调味他们的食物。甜食通常在喝茶的时候提供，或者用作晚上的小吃。在美国，人们从来不吃动物的任何内部器官，如耳舌;当他们做饭时，只吃肉(母头34)。在美国，一般禁止吃狗和青蛙。他们喜欢在食物中加入加工过的香料，包括番茄酱和胡椒粉，一般来说，美国人不使用调味料。在美国，甜点一般在晚饭后才供应(Kulkarni192)。美国人和中国人的饮食习惯也不同。在中国，人们更喜欢使用圆桌，因为它被认为是方便提供食物给别人(Kulkarni 191)。在中国，圆象征着人与人之间的团结与和谐。因为他们准备的食物是切成小块的，所以在中国他们用筷子吃饭(约a, Patterson和Kristal25)。在美国，人们喜欢用方桌吃饭，适合个人用餐，大桌子适合更大的群体。
They use ginger, garlic, pepper, spring onion, chillies, mint, etc. in their food (Mothershead 23). They use soy sauce and vinegar for seasoning their foods.

Eating dog and frog are generally prohibited in the US. They prefer processed spices in their food which includes ketchups and pepper powder,Generally, people in the US do not use seasoning. Sweet desserts in the US are generally served after dinner gets over (Kulkarni192).Dining customs are also different among the US and the Chinese people.People in china preferably use a round table, as it is considered to be convenient to serve food to others (Kulkarni 191). In China roundness symbolizes unity and harmony among people.

Since they cut vegetables and other food ingredients into large pieces, they use fork and knife to eat (Mothershead 34).It can be seen here that both the nations are having certain particular customs and culture of food but differs highly from each other.Though food is a vital ingredient of life, each and every country, culture, society or region has its own individuality when it comes to how they are going to cook, serve and consume food. It can be seen in case of China and the US that both have unique and distinct techniques of cooking serving and consuming food. Also it can be noted that some forms of food preferred in one location is not preferred or even prohibited in other location. It has also been seen that China is more communal which reflects in their ways of serving and eating compared to that of the US. China today has become famous around the globe because of their authentic and delicious cuisine which is not the case of the US.
