Hot. Spicy. Numbing. For heat-seeking food devotees, Sichuan cuisine ranks near the top of the list. Dishes are filled with a variety of fragrant herbs and vegetables, meats like lamb, pork, and chicken, then flavored with ginger, cumin, and garlic, and mixed together with Sichuan peppercorns, hot chiles, and silky sauces. The heat meter on these dishes ranges from mild to mouth-on-fire hot, but that heat never detracts from the flavors penetrating through the chiles and peppercorns found in the fare from regions around southwestern China.
